Lines, and the Lines that carry the Lines...


Ongoing progress here in the studio, and I thought I'd let you all in on the not so secret, secret, I use blue painter's tape, ahhhh, gasp! Still warm as a wool blanket in here, all windows open, no air going thru, oh well, enjoy it while I can, I occupy a place with no heat, except for a wood burning stove, that is very old. Winter will be here soon enough!
Well, on with the night, it's when I work best! On a lighter note, had a fun shout out in Dennis Hollingsworth's blog; I do think, somewhere down the line, we are blood, too many simularities in common. Was your dad a "join the military" kind of father as well? I get the feeling that he might have been. My father was Army, his brother was Navy, and my middle brother Mickey, well, Air Force. Johnny [my youngest brother]and I, went to college, kinda makes us, undiciplined I suppose. Johnny and I were in several bands in our college, and post college years, sort of simul..aammmm, I'll stop there...

I like the blue, and the repetition of the blue. (I know you are going to remove it, but still)

Off tangent, but are you happy with the flickr system? It looks cool and functional as an addition to the blog. Have you tried the 3M 20-80 blue tape yet? I keep forgetting to tell every body about another 3M product called Finesse-it II Finishing Material. It is designed for use on automotive paints to remove tiny scratches but works great as a sheen controller. I use it now for final finishes on faux stone and marbles. You can buff acrylic gel medium from satin to hyper-glossy. Lots of control. Some work. Wax on wax off grasshopper.

I like the blue as well Chris, it is going to be in there, somehow, someway. I haven't been able to locate the tape you speak of yet Steve, funny thing about Lowes, not to helpful on the tape front. I like my flickr account, seems to be a place I can store my photos, and add or substract, depending.

I know for a fact that you have a Miller Paint in the Emerald City. They stock it.

I've considered some tape in my own work, but I'm trying to shed hard edges.
Funny, I like the one with the blue tape on it how about leaving it sometime and just gloss it over with something?
When I painted cartoon backgrounds I often use tape instead of friskit.
