Here it is the Monday again and I’m SUPPOSED to be spending today picking topics for future eArticles. But the internet is calling me and pulling my attention away! But that’s OK really, because there is some great info on the internet if you give yourself permission to poke around and take a little time to read some blog posts and watch some videos and let the flow of the internet take you someplace interesting. Today I’ve watched several EXCELLENT videos that relate to using acrylic paints in the studio – things like avoiding over-diluting acrylic paints, how to clean brushes and palettes, and even how to get dried acrylic paint out of clothes or other fabrics. Good stuff. So I wanted to let you know about them.
I’ll bet I know an art word that most stampers (including myself) have been using incorrectly for years. In fact, just as late as the most recent eArticle, I used the term “monoprint” to describe a technique that involves scribbling watercolor crayons onto a craft sheet, wetting them and pressing paper onto the color to transfer the design to paper. But today I learned that isn’t really a monoprint! It’s actually a monotype. Do you know the difference?
