There were a couple of news items at the beginning of the show. We have a survey up and would appreciate it if you all took a few minutes to fill it out (only 7 questions). This will help us prioritize improvements and plans for the show’s future so please tell us what you think! Also, just a reminder that we are still trying to reach 200 likes on Facebook so jump in and like us! There will be a drawing for an original art piece done by Katie and Loni once we reach our goal and all you have to do to qualify is go like the Two Arts Gals Facebook page.
Oh man these sparkly watercolors are cool and The Gals has a blast playing around with them. They talked about these paints as if they were reviewing the product so you will benefit from their opinions and experience working with them (they really are a lot of fun). You can listen to this episode here. To see the cool things we found when researching the show make sure you check out the Pintrest board for this episode. To find the specific product The Gals use click here.
There are many different brands and types of pearlescent watercolors so don’t be afraid to experiment and play around.
Here are the color key that Katie made and the cool wet painting experiment that Loni did.
Oh! And here is the really cool and silly video of the shimmering paints that Loni made (we don’t know why they are talking about sweaty balls in the background… they continue to be a strange mystery). The video does give you a nice example of just how shimmery these paints are.
And this is the quick little painting Katie did with the pearlescent paints!
