I thought it might be fun to try a small acrylic painting on a scrap of balsa wood from Hub’s shop. This is about 6″ wide by 3″ high.
I first coated the wood with matte Mod Podge, let it dry and then went in with the paint. One thing I have to be mindful of when working with acrylics is that they always dry darker, which is the opposite of what I’m used to with watercolor. The nice thing, though, is you can always go back in and add light paint over dark areas if that happens, so … bonus!
Happy Monday, and I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive week! Peace.
