Tara S. Holl replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Making acrylic craft paint more permanent on painted wood?
"First of all, you need to know that not all acrylics are the same!!! The amount of pigment is considerably less in the cheaper varieties and it does matter! Secondly, it may be painted with an oil base paint (the existing white paint on horse) which…"

"I have painted a lot of furniture and currently use wood panels as my substrate. You will need to make sure your piece is sanded or stripped thoroughly for it to work well. Chalk paint might adhere better. Spray paint will also chip off of an oil…"

"Perhaps, scuff then use a primer to bond to the previous surface, then paint on that. A pigmented shellac has good bonding properties, will hide what is underneath and be a good receptor for the next coat."

"Sometimes surfaces have to scuffed up a bit, even if they feel and appear *not* glossy. I work with chalk paint and this occurs from time to time. Try using some steel wool."

Excellent post of the day, Linnea! Thank you. I hope everyone who feels beaten down by the jury system reads it.

And the trophy goes to Linnea! Once again cutting through the words and explaining so clearly what everyone needs to hear. Good job on your recent comment at "Crafter Police".

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!

 

Warmest regards!

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! 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?
Thanks!

Thanks Lin for weighing in on A-RTS. These shows pay me, of course, to have their information shared and to have this one get such reviews from you is great! I appreciate it.

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, not sure if you got my other messages, I seem to have a hard time manuvering around this site. I'm sure you're busy with shows right now.
