I Want It In Black and White!

I need to find my OOOO paint brush!  With the O, my lines are a bit thick. 

I cut the counter tops for Daisy's kitchen this morning. 

You can see the "if at first you don't succeed" lines on the stove top... They will  cover up nicely...
See? I told you.  Two coats of black paint will cover the pencil lines.

Then I used my O liner brush, since I couldn't locate my OOOO brush.

First you drink  a LOT of coffee.  Then you hold your brush vertically to the surface.  Using soupy white paint, you draw the lines and then quickly, before they dry, smear some of them with your fingers.

Now I have to let them dry well.  If I can find my other brush, I will add some more fine lines. 

I repainted the sink in black.  And put another coat of black on the glass stove top.

Now I have to be patient.  I want all of the surfaces to be really dry before I put a coat or two of gloss over them. 

Tessie "relayed" the message for the black and white marble from Daisy.  I do hope that it was really Daisy's idea.  I also hope that the message was not just a figment of Tessie's imagination... In other words, the color that she, Tessie, liked...

Anyway, I am going to go to Wednesday Witches' mini meeting.  That will keep my mind off of paint drying.  Gotta run!

See you tomorrow.
