New Technique



I found another set of the little silver coasters that I paint the bird nests on.... While I was watching Jon and Kate plus 8 (anybody else watch them??) anyway, I got to clicking on crafty Youtube clips...there is soooo much info out there. This guy was using spray paint and watered down acrylic paints to make unusual finishes...so after my little show was over I went out to give it a try...(I am soooo glad it stays light late) This is what I came up with, I tried something different on each one...I love it!!! I cant wait to paint them (tonight!) Next time I'll show you the backs...they're done too, but look different because the paint slid off rather then puddle up like this side did....oh the fun I had!
Oh yes...my office was a big hit with my boss.
