Show & Share:
**This mostly doubled as our evening presentation…
**We went around the room, one at a time, showing what little tricks or tips we thought were relevant or helpful. A few things that were helpful to me were…. The use of a glue stick to add gold leaf to various pieces. Lighter fluid is a good cleaner. It evaporates and doesn’t leave a residue. Elmers tape strip is easy to use. Isopropyl alcohol will eat dried acrylic and inks. Use a flip calendar as a stand up cheat sheet with reduced exemplars.
