A blog that is so distinctive with well-analyzed information. I am actually in need for this sort of vital information. Thanks for providing me solutions. Functional blog.

Leilani, your comment brings up an interesting point. When I've done this kind of sponge painting, I've had certain colors in mind, but no specific result. What if you just picked five or six colors that look good together and experiment on heavy paper? Then let it dry and touch up the result with whatever your eye tells you it needs. I know this sounds hopelessly vague, but as long as you dab and daub instead of mix and smear, you'll probably like what you get.

I sure need to work on my multiple color mixing/daubing technique. I never know what to use to get the result I want. Frustrating.

Hope you SF class is great fun!

Thanks for commenting, Lenore! It's so nice to know you're out there reading and reacting to the blog!

I should think one could easily find that shiney wallet in the dark depths of a purse! Happy New Year!

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
