Another Fail ;-( but I know what went wrong….

This was yesterdays work. Used an old canvas and wanted to try the iridescent medium that had just arrived. I used crimson, purple, yellow and white. Mixed as normal but forgot the silicon in the cups….didn’t realise til after I’d swiped and nothing happened. I poured a little of the colours into separate cups and added iridescent med so I’d have hopefully one plain and one metallic type paint for each colour.

After swiping and realising I’d forgotten the silicon, I sprayed the canvas, and also added a couple of squirts into all paints. Then poured more over, and swiped once more. This time some cells came but all that swiping mixed the colours and TBH it just looks a mess to me.

Here’s the holes in the other canvasses which I think were due to adding varnish as a medium…well, that’s my guess. Could be something else.

I can’t do any today as I’ve used all my floetrol, and the next I’d ordered (2.5 litre from ebay) I didn’t notice wasn’t coming before 12th July. So sucked it up and ordered another 1 litre from amazon to come tomorrow.

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
