Liquitex Satin VarnishMinwax Polycrylic Clear Semi-gloss I tried both as a top coat on a faux finished metal project that I had invested many hours in, and both showed a lot of brushstrokes. I tried switching brushes, using a mini roller, and all left an unacceptable amount of texture. I tried mixing with an additive (Floetrol) that is supposed to slow drying and eliminate brushstrokes, and that didn’t help either. No change. Both containers say not to thin. But perhaps they both evaporated a…See More
"It's small for me too. But I have not been on here in some time.
I just fix my screen using my keyboard whenever I run across this. (There's probably a proper name for doing this, LOL).

"The fact that they promised a refund BEFORE booth fees were due would imply "full refund" to any reasonable person. If they said "partial refund" at that time - which in reality is what they are trying to do now - how many…"
"Interesting. My new Liquitex Titanium White arrived.
Apparently, this version of white is still not white. I had thought the previous old Shiva white had yellowed: but the new version is the same vanilla color. I recall a painting teacher - decades…"
"So yes, that tube was just too old and not quality enough to begin with.
Good news the modeling paste work better.
You are welcome stay safe from the virus and wash your hands every 20 seconds.... or maybe it's for 20 seconds, yeah that's…"
"I did pull it out with a stick and remix. It was pretty stiff and lumpy. It reconstituted readily, though.
The next day when I saw what I had applied was yellow, I squeezed more out to get the paint that was further inside. That looks pretty…"
"Yes, Shiva is a lower quality brand, especially an old tube but that usually won't apply to yellowing. The mediums in all paints, oil, acrylics, gouache etc will separate so it could be you did not 're-mix' it.
Knead the tube or use a…"
Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604
Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?
Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.
Hi, Linnea! Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show? Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them? Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show. Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated! Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!
