Ohhhh...a MEdium!

Feel free to roll your eyes when you read this. I just had one of those ah-ha! moments. I'm working on a mini canvas and was having some problems with the color.  It was just too flat and boring. Several layers of paint, gesso, paint, and even more gesso I decided to try something.  I added some matte gel medium to my paint in hopes that it would make it a little more translucent. It worked!

I know.  Duh, Julie.  For some reason I've only thought of using it as an adhesive or to make super thin substrates a little sturdier.  It never occurred to me to just add it to my paint.  Dork.

I felt the need to share this today. :)  Happy Saturday!

  1. Light bulb moments are wonderful and of course help others who would never have thought of this either! Hope you are seeing the path light up before you:-) xxx


I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what you think about this post. Have a spectacular day!
