    Hello Addicts! So ya'll know how much of a sucker I am for wax seals...Thought I'd share yet another video compilation of sealing. You will see her, in one of the examples, using a marble tile to do a seal. You can use the tile to pre make seals and adhere them later. So, recently I went to the hardware store to get myself a tile. I know that I have seen tile on sale separately. Tile sold as replacements for broken tile...well...of course when I'm actually looking for it...not a one to be found! I tried Lowes and Home Depot. No luck. So then I went to this big flooring warehouse store. They didn't sell what I wanted separately too...but there was a lot of small tiles that fell off of a sheet of bigger tiles. They were all over the floor. So I picked up two and then picked a a 99 cent marble tile (not the shape I wanted) Asked the cashier if I could somehow purchase the two random tiles...but she said, "those...oh, you can just have those." ...ok...I'm such a nut...'cause it made my day LOL!! I'm so glad that it takes so little to make me happy. (Now I feel like a major dork-a-potomus admitting all this...but I can't help it...I'm so giddy over it!)

    Wax Seal Showreel




    Also, I've learned through Instagram and Youtube...to do clear seals. People are using regular hot glue with their hot glue gun to make seals. I asked a gal that was doing a tut on Instagram about the glue...she said any will work, but try different brands to get the clearest glue. The clear glue is great to use with glitter or flowers...and the best stamp to use is one with no design.

    Here's a video from the gal that I've been following on Instagram...

    Lillian Vu Clear Wax Sealing

    Using Flowers

    Also, if you have left over gold leaf or metallic leaf...you can use it like this...




    FYI, they do sell clear wax for sealing...but I love the bargain of the glue gun sticks

    Thank you for the share with the wax seals Mel, the process is just sooo satisfying to watch... I am pre-making seals on a non stick baking sheet, I am just too practical (lazy ) to get out any of my small spare tiles from the shed.
    And you also nailed my summer with all your gifs But the kids are not too bad, as long as I can stay aware of just how and who they are and not try to superimpose my expectations on them, I think they are pretty awesome. If I have expectations... they turn into the devils incarnate!

    We had been chatting about Peerless watercolours in one of the last few months, today I found a Peerless review by one of my favourite YouTube artists

    Great to see you here SunTrade! And to see you are playing this month.

    Happy late Independance Day!

    Just to let you know I have not yet started the wonderful soap you scent. My kids have a habit of flooding my soap holder and I dont want to see that happen to your sweet scented goodie. Instead I have placed it on the windowsill over my art desk, everytime I art, and/or open the window I can enjoy your soapywork Much better place for it than in the bathroom being drenched by my pestle of brats...

    Thank you Gemininorn ! I will start a new job next week, and I have been so busy, but I am so happy I found work. Well, the decision comes Tuesday afternoon, so wish me luck!

    You need to use the soap! For one thing it will leave your skin silky, lol. Plus the scent can disappear with time.

    Gem, I often think of my kids as comedians that live with me. They do crack me up...so yeah, even though they can be much at times...they can be a lot of fun too <3

    Suntrade, glad you're joining us! ...and good luck to hearing the news you want on Tuesday

    I have shipped off the brood to sports camp for 5 mornings this week, just to get a little feeling of normality And while I was working on a course by Willowing I was listening to this lovely threesome

    interview

    with Mind of Watercolour, one more guy I can‘t remember his name or channel but he was nice, and Denise Soden from In Liquid Colour. I hope you enjoy
