Paul and Richard, thanks but I already have all that except for the wedges and I have sculpting tools that perform that function. I was thinking of some books but I'm not ready to Give up on DMP method.
Ohh! Looks interesting. Is the 'S' for shadow?Did you mix some paint into the rustoleum to tint it that colour?
Sash? the tree trunk looks thicker in the middle than the base. A few types are like that or maybe it's an optical delusion. Take your magnifying goggles off now, you shouldn't need them for this one. The perspective looks persfect though.
PaulBOne more. .... QTip moistened with WD40.DenisI burst out laughing only because my husband and I always joke about how WD40 gets out everything - the twins used crayon all over our hall/stairwell walls and after tearing out our hair trying different soaps and warm water, yeppers, WD40 was the magic potion to make it all disappear!I honestly believe my Dad could fix anything with the stuff :-)
This particular problem is trying to get Gamblin varnish out of a brush using Gamblin solvent, and one would think this would work just fine, but it seems to require OMS to do it well.
After extensive research in our lab, we have found that the brand ‘Gamsol’ or White Spirits are not the best way to clean our Ivory or Classic ranges. There seems to be some sort of chemical within those two particular products that can at times make those ranges ‘splay’ and or ‘curl’ at the end. If you have been using those products with those ranges and not experienced these problems, please continue as you have done in the past. We recommend alternatives which include (but are not limited to):
Zest It Oil Paint and Dillutant
Info: It’s an environmentally friendly, non-flammable, non-toxic, biodegradable, alternative to ‘turps’ and white spirit, made from the zest of citrus fruit for cleaning brushes and thinning paint.
Winsor & Newton Sansodor Low Odour Solvent
Info: a highly refined odorless mineral spirit that is used to dilute (thin) artists’ oil paints and is also used to dilute oil media (linseed oils, alkyd media, etc).
Lavender Brush Cleaner
Alternatively many of the essential oils also make great brush cleaning solvents. Lavender oil is actually a stronger solvent than turpentine. Walnut oil is good for cleaning brushes while painting. Final cleaning however should be done with soap and water.
