….I stocked up on a bunch of test pot colours pre-lockdown (ha!…and you were all buying toilet paper!) for a project that proved too noisy and too stinky (burning +oneware is best done sans house mate, the smell of blazing 70s wood finishes does linger a “bit”) and have run out of “melting moments” one coat shy of the next part of the less noisy, less stinky project I switched to…
…was reduced to adding small quantities of water, leaving to soak and shaking the container violently so as to extract a wan near-water-colour consistency fluid to wash over the piece in the vain hope that I could achieve the cover I needed….
…7 coats later….
…IT’S ALL GONE….
…AND I’M NOT CONVINCED IT LOOKS “MELTING MOMENTS” ENOUGH….
…and while I can (I think) order more on line, I’d feel like I was abandoning my local paint shop to a post-lockdown wasteland with only test-pots to eat….
…first world lockdown problems….
