Kat McBride to see what else she offers. Because I don’t have an extender to use with my acrylic paints I tried some other mediums to see what results they give.
First one was the Matte medium fluid (Liquitex). It thinned the paint and gave it translucency but it also got tacky real quick and when I wasn’t careful I ended up with the buildup of color at one area. (this was the first face I've done but I didn't include it here in this photo)
1. face: Glazing fluid medium (Liquitex) was a little better but it dried pretty quickly or it was absorbed by the paper so I couldn’t blend the lines that appeared. Whereas with the Slow-dri blending medium (Liquitex) and Open acrylic gel (Golden) I could go back with a clean brush dipped in the medium and blend the lines, I couldn’t do so with the Glazing medium.
2. face: Slow-dri blending medium (Liquitex) I find the best from the mediums to replace the extender. It took the least amount from the four mediums and it blended wonderfully. With the Glazing liquid I actually had to pour a second time because I used it up so quickly.
3. face: Open acrylic gel (Golden) has a gel consistency which I thought would bother me but surprisingly it didn’t and I didn’t use it up as much as I thought I would so I had to put quite large amount of it back in the jar. Obviously it took the longest time to dry but that meant also I could blend better as well. But I had to be careful when going back after it had dried a bit because it got tacky and I ended up taking off the paint instead of blending it.
Let me explain the title now. :) You know that feeling when you hear a popular new song and you realize they took the melody from an old song that nobody seems to recall unless they're over 30 years old. :)
One part of Pittbull's rapping caught my attention and I was like, is he referring to himself as Mr. Gray from 50 Shades of Gray?
"She read books,
especially about red rooms and tie ups
I got her hooked,
Cause she seen me in a suit with the red tie tied up"
~ Pitbull - Feel This Moment
Here's the original. :) A part of the melody is the same, the lyrics are totally different.
Linking to Paint Party Friday. Have a fabulous weekend!
