    Sun Trade, they sure are. I’ve been wanting to try them too. Just haven’t got my courage up yet.

    I was wondering about that. Is there a spray or something that gets them to dry faster?

    I haven’t tried them, but alkyd oils dry faster:

    Also, I painted a few bob ross inspired paintings last night:

    I bought some ‘retarder’ to slow the drying time of my gesso base. I’m hoping it will work like ‘liquid white’.

    Actually drying time depends on your technique, how much you add other oils (I normally just use mineral spirits as medium, acts like the water in acrylic), and the brand of paint. Good brands will dry within a week, 10 days tops.

    I have actually made many ATC in oils, they turned out pretty good. Check this links:
    https://artisttradingcardsforswap.bl...ls-paints.html
    https://artisttradingcardsforswap.bl...struments.html


    However Marie, I finished my cards, and I cannot decide if I like them, maybe I should just withdraw...

    I will be flooded with work starting next wek, and honestrly I will not have the time to remake them.

    I’d hate to see you withdraw after you’ve already made your paintings. I’ll bet they are fine. We’re all our own worst critics.... I took a peek at your links and the landscapes there are gorgeous. Why don’t you sit with them a while before you decide?

    C38FE616-22EF-40E4-86EF-4954CB075F69.jpg and ED863F53-6CD4-4D0C-99A6-62D9CA500AC9.jpg

    I found no real benefit from adding retarder to the gesso, but I do like the paintings. Palette knife is hard for me, even though I bought a very tiny one.... but I can’t expect skill only 2 paintings in... Overall I’m satisfied with these two.

    Tamalece your cards are here already! That was fast! They’re even more ‘Bob’ in person. Thanks for making an extra for me!
