This is so fun- I love paint (you already knew that?!) A good blogger friend and fellow mod podge lover- Mod Podge Amy of Mod Podge Rocks! and Paint me Plaid- is allowing me to do a Folk Art Paint giveaway!!!!!!!!!! She sent me this set of 10 paints (I got to pick the colors!) And I get to give these same colors away to one of you!!!!! Isn't that great news?
I usually use the Apple Barrel paints (made my the same people as the Folk Art acrylics), and I am used to getting primary colors and mixing any color I need. There is something very therapeutic about mixing your own colors. So I thought it would be interesting to try these custom colors. I still did end up mixing them together- add a little gilded oak to the apple red....lavender with a little dark brown made some more good color.
Gigi wanted this little side table painted... and I though this would be a good place to try these paints.
I had a lot of fun with the colors.
No surface was untouched.
Painting is fun.
I love these colors.
I think you will like sampling these colors too.
Just leave a comment telling me what you like to do creatively (paint? sew? cook? garden? decoupage? etc....) and I will pick a name from the comments to be the winner of a bottle of each of these colors:
(not sure what you would do with the paints? Not a painter? Try it! You may like it! Just squirt some around on a piece of wood or paper or canvas- spread it around with a spatula- you never know- you may find your stress reliever! That is my solution to every ailment - Paint!)
Thanks to Mod Podge Amy and the people from Plaid & Paint me Plaid for making this giveaway possible!
