Happy Paint Party Friday!
At least, I’m happy, because I finally have a painting to show! Just a quickie giraffe in pastel. I couldn’t resist his funny face. I was happy with it until I sprayed it to keep it from smearing. I obviously didn’t use the same product I used to use on pastels because this one ruined it. It made all the colors go gray like a gray mist was sprayed on it. And that was one very light coat! I added some more dark, over the top of it, to the eyes because it was the worst there. I really need to go over the whole thing with more pastel to bring the color back up, but I probably won’t since he wasn’t for framing. I’ll let him sit around a few days and see if I feel inclined to work on it some more. Oh, the product I used was Krylon UV Protectant varnish, matte, from the fine art section. And it was pricey! If you have some and haven’t used it, don’t until you try it on something that isn’t important! I’m very happy to be back at Paint Party Friday this week!
