I started painting the rocks on the foundation and porch of the teashop this morning. In the photo, the right side is with one coat of Trail Tan Ceramcoat. On the other side, I have just started stippling the other colors on top.
I am using a rather stiff acrylic brush. I tend to mix the colors right on the brush without cleaning between colors. That seems to make the rocks more blended and not so spotty from one color to the next. I still need to do some more work on knocking the edges down too.
My pallet consists of all Ceramcoat colors. There is forest green, parchment, hippo gray, burnt umber and metallic copper. By the time I get done, it will be a muddy mess.
Tessie stepped in to see what I was doing. She wouldn't let me publish her photo. She said that her hair was a mess and she had no make up on.....Isn't her hair always that way and, she wears make up??? I didn't say it out loud, but I did think it.
Anyway, between placating the cats and shooing Tessie away I got quite a bit done. Here you see what I finished so far.
If I can talk both cats into their afternoon naps, I will try to finish it later today. If not, I will be reading bedtime stories to them to try to get them to take said naps. Wish me luck.
See you tomorrow.
