i've been a naughty blogger (slap hand) i know... but really, being the lead-up to christmas i do have an excuse dont i?! the peeps and i have made the trip to perth for a friend's wedding on saturday which i am so lookin forward to. and i've been able to make some final christmas purchases too. now, if you are a painter i have a question for you...
i have been wanting to varnish/seal my paintings for some time now, but as i use both oil and acrylic paint, this has proved a little more difficult to resolve - apparently there are different varnishes for both. what to do??? i have been advised (after many conversations with shop owners etc) that i need to use an isolating medium and then something like MSA by Golden over the top. so. i want to know if there is one product out there that i can use rather than two? the isolating medium takes 3 days to dry - and then the varnish more again. there must be another way!
so if you've come across this problem before, i'd love to know how you resolved it!
i am loving the build up to christmas and cant wait to make our christmas biscuits next week with the peeps. but as with every year, i so WISH i was having a white christmas! i read a blog post today and the author wrote that it was cold and dark by 4pm... here it's still light at 7pm! well, the summer evenings are nice - but oh it would be lovely to snuggle up in front of a fire with a warm cup of milo and a good book!
