In every class you take there is usually very useful fact that sticks out that you learn.
- I have learned that rubbing alcohol dissolves and removes acrylic paint even when it dries.
- I learned about Mr Clean erasers in my first Charles Reid class in Atlanta and have been using them ever since.
- In John Salimens class I learned about masking taping your painting when you use a Mr Clean on your painting. That way you can hone in on an exact spot.
I absolutely loathed it when I was done. As no doubt you know that might mean the painting was ruined. So yesterday I decided to lift it with a Mr Clean and masking tape. It couldn’t hurt it.
And here it’s all erased in one swipe and a blot with a Kleenex.
This is the tape job before I lifted the color off the spout.
And here’s the spout after I swiped with the Mr Clean. Be sure to use clean water and a clean sponge.
And here’s the painting now. I also went back in and added some carmine to the lilies in the left. They were too purple.
And I tried to soften their edges. Those darn Lilies are asuch a pain. Always sticking out.
Ttyl time to paint. Margaret whose thinking of giving the droopy flowers one more go round.
