Resin painting #110

Let me say right away that I had nothing to do with these color choices.  It was not my idea to do a bright colors resin painting. I wanted to spend Mother’s Day painting pottery with my boys (ages 10 to 12).  When I couldn’t get anyone to do that with me, I decided to… Read more »

You would think if you had success with a process using one set of colors, you could get it to work with another set of colors, right?  Yeah, you would think.
