|Melanie and Marge are getting advice on a project.|
We used Dr PH Martin Bleed Proof Opaque White Paint. I think you can use any water based acrylic opaque white paint from art stores. We applied the paint using cotton balls, que tips and Ranger felt pads. First lay down a coating of color and then tap in very small amounts of the paint with your chosen applicator. Keep tapping or streaking until you have the desired effect.
Another technique that is new to me is the use of a hot iron and colored wax. The colors you use and the method of holding the iron in certain directions and applying pressure in just the right way will result in the most amazing looking scenes. I learned this one from Barb.

That's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow with our Silhouette challenge winner and top 3 pics.
