    Does anyone use watercolors to paint your carvings? I have always used acrylics but recently decided to try watercolors. I bought a cheap set from Walmart to see if I liked them or not. I use a lot of water and the color penetrates the wood. It looks more like a tent that paint. I like the watercolors and believe I will buy a more expensive set.
    Thanks

        He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

        Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

        It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
