I have been watching Gourd Art videos. They use Makeup Sponges to apply a thin
layer of paint or stain.
I tried applying Chroma-Guilt with a Makeup Sponge. It works great! A lot better than using your finger. You can apply a thin layer with out getting it into your carved or burned pattern!
I purchase my Makeup Sponges on Amazon. See above photo. Google "Amazon Artist Choice Makeup Sponges"
Makeup Sponges Method
Squeeze out Chroma-Guilt on a pallet. Then spread it out with Makeup Sponge.
Get a nice thin layer of Chroma-Guilt on the sponge.
Use the Makeup Sponge to spread a thin layer of Chroma-Guilt on your piece.
Lightly swipe the sponge back and forth. It is easy!
A lot easier than using your finger. No putting on rubber gloves. No globs of Chroma-Guilt on your finger that get into your carved or burned pattern!
Makeup Sponges allow you to get up close to details with out making a mess. Like getting up close to the rim around the bowl in the center of the piece in photo.
Note: You should apply (spray on) on a sealer BEFORE applying the Chroma-Guilt. As per Nick Agar Chroma-Guilt demos, classes and process.
Using a Makeup Sponge is really fast and stress free.
Hint: Use two Chroma-Guilt colors to create some contrast. I dabbed on Saxon Gold over Celtic Copper.
Note: You should apply (spray on) on a WATER BASED sealer AFTER applying the Chroma-Guilt. As per Nick Agar Chroma-Guilt demos, classes and process.
It seems like I get an endless supply of glossy paper pallets in the US mail every day.
Political advertisements work best. I really enjoy painting out the face of politician! 🙂
Note: The country of Ecuador eliminated the Post Office and mail during the Covid pandemic. It is gone for good! If you want to send postcards home to friends and family this is a big problem. But, when you think about. No more junk mail! It's not such a crazy idea. I could live happily ever after if we eliminated the US mail system. In Ecuador they use DHL to send important mail to people,
