Where does the time go, it seemed like I just posted and the last post was in April! I've found it's easier and faster to just post updates on facebook but I forget not everyone is on facebook.
We have been doing a lot of cool projects with our VerDay Paints (Reactive Paints), that's the new buzz word REACTIVE PAINTS. That essentially means "it reacts" after the patina has been sprayed on it.
I instantly thought our VerDay Paints and even decided I would use our "money water" in this project.
I ended up applying a lot of the "money water" to the bag because water soaks into canvas...really fast!
I tried to take my brush down to the bottom of the container where the sludge is and use a lot of that. My "money water" has a lot of iron in it, so when I sprayed on the VerDay Patina the reactive paint changed to iron more than any other color. That's the beauty of reactive paints, you have no control over what will happen.
This tends to drive "control freaks" NUTS.
But, I find it's so cool to come in the next day and be surprised at what your creation has turned into.
Now for those of you who are wondering where did this "money water" come from, we talk about this extensively on our online class. You can learn all about these various techniques used in our VerDay online class and we also did a Metal online class. Hope you check them out and each one has it's own private FaceBook page for students.
This weekend August 23-25 we are a vendor at Bead Fest in Philadelphia. We are teaching a class on Friday morning that is way cool and I hope we see a lot of our friends from the east coast.
I'm going to try and post more often on the blog as we end out the summer and welcome fall. I can't wait for cooler weather and maybe some rain.
