to add to your paint or other mediums: http://www.jerrysartarama.com/discount-art-supplies/Acrylic-Paints-and-Mediums/Matisse-Derivan-Acrylics-and-Mediums/Matisse-Mix-Ins-Dry-Mediums.htm Who ever knew you could find crushed garnet? 4 sizes of sand? I’m going to do what I love to do most- experiment!
I also want to give a plug regarding a very useful tool called the Colour Shaper. You can purchase it at most art stores, online or actual stores, or at : http://www.royaldesignstudio.com/shop_supplies_detail.php?id=1304. I use the shaper tool to fill in stencils with usually a smooth medium. I have another Colour Shaper tool that is actually perforated, allowing one to move the medium over curved surfaces, such as columns. Handy dandy!
to Dee, Tom and Carol at McDhurries for hosting Deborah and I at their beautiful store!
McDhurries is in a great building (the old Rocky River post office) with a wonderful layout. Their rugs are to die for and their antique wood furniture pieces are tempting as well!
