Blue Chair with Geraniums
I've repainted the flowers on this piece so many times, I'm exhausted. (It's not meant to be realistic, merely the suggestion of geraniums...)
I made my own stay wet tray to keep the acrylic paints from drying out. A quick trip to the dollar store to purchase 9x13 cookie sheet and shammy. Since the cookie sheet is steel (not stainless) I lined with with plastic, cut the shammy to size, soaked the shammy in water; placed it on cookie sheet and covered it with a piece of baking parchment cut to size - so far so good. Now that I've finished painting for the day, I covered the whole thing with Press'n Seal. I think it may keep it wet for a day or two - hoping it will any way!
