DecoArt with Mark Montano at CHA!

I had the opportunity to go to the CHA Mega Show in Anaheim earlier this week!  I met a lot of people that I have known virtually for several years. One of the individuals I met was Mark Montano at a DecoArt make-n-take! 
Mark Montano and Pla Schneider at DecoArt make-n-take! 

Working on a make-n-take bracelet with Mark Montano at DecoArt!

Supplies: Wooden Bracelet, Wax, Sand paper,  DecoArt Chalk Paints: Legacy, Relic and Whisper.
First paint Legacy on the wooden bracelet, let dry.  Wax over the Legacy. Paint second color, Relic and let dry.  Sand it down showing some of the first layer. Wax over the sanded paint.  Paint the third color Whisper, let it dry.  Sand it again showing.  Now for the magic.  BUFF the bracelet with a paper towel using a lot of pressure.... the beauty of the paints will show!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
