Day 8: It is really Day 9. I have worked several layers on a couple of paintings but I’m really excited about what I am learning in the Acrylic Painting Class I am taking through Craftsy. The teacher is Rheni Tauchid. I am learning so much about the materials I already have.
Today I learned to read my labels before applying the gel – lol. I had to scrape off all of the heavy pumice gel and then apply the light pumice gel followed by the heavy pumice gel! I even put extra gel in my heavy pumice gel because it did not look like the instructor’s. Oh and I am back to a slow Internet so it took forever to load my lesson – a few seconds at the time.
No games and nothing that has added video can stay on for any length of time.
Also learned that even after the applying the wash I made with my golden paint and glazing liquid – and letting it dry, a spot of water will still leave a spot. Remember – note to self – be very careful .
This last layer is still drying but you can see some of the translucent nature of the gel below.
