Yes, I want you to see a different brush in action.
Well, two different brushes actually.
And you’ll maybe have a laugh at the second one – but, hey! – I can take it.
And my general point is how the right tool makes life very easy.
It’s just that sometimes it’s a “judgement call” whether it’s my talent or my tools or my paint etc. etc. which is giving me problems.
And maybe you do this too, because I’m certainly more inclined to “blame myself” rather than anything else. (Good thing too because it’s usually me!)
So here’s a perfect case where someone – no matter how talented they were – could struggle with the wrong brush or do it easily with the right one.
There’s a useful 3-minute video just below. But first, a few words about the project …
Right, these are inscription panels we’re working on right now – long strips of glass with writing on them. In this case – the virtues in Latin. (Yes, the tycoon wants to be reminded of the virtues. That makes me smile. And you?)
So on the front, we’ve already done the writing.
And on the back, it’s now time to add some decoration between each word. First there is an undercoat (not shown), then the decoration with a perfect brush (shown), finally a bit of “roughing up” (shown) because the skylights must look old.
So here’s a photo of the decoration:
And here (like you saw last time) is the brush:
It’s an acrylic brush with a chisel head.
The quick video
And here’s the video – cool music, too:
Let me know what you think, or if you have questions …
All the best,
