I´m an instant gratification kind of painter.
I´ve tried aquarelles but the building up of colour takes time. I´ve also tried oils, but the drying times are not to my liking. My favourite kind of paints are acrylics. Specially applying them directly to the piece I´m working on which my painting teacher says is quite unusual and I´m the only one of her students that works this way. Trust me to be the odd one. ;) *grin*
I usually work on small size wood pieces or A5 paper. A4 being the biggest I´ve used with just one exception of a big cardboard.
Taking into account my taste for big, fast coverage I was truly happy with this painting project:
The second stage was to remove the first layer of the wall paper, the decorative one which was easy enough.
The base layer was another matter. Armed with a bucket of warm water and detergent and a roller brush I got sections of the paper really wet and then scrapped it.
Whew! I see the walls again.
Mistake: we painted the bookcase over without realizing the varnish would prevent the paint to stick.. Lesson: sand all the wood surfaces.
We used water based interior sheer paint. Three layers of red later:
