I just finished a painting for the Artist & Craftsman’s Glow Show – you should stop by any time this month! Any opportunity to play with things that glow in the dark is a good one, and I decided to up the complicatedness by also making little clay lightning bugs and embed them in resin inside the painting. I am still not convinced this was a good idea, but it was s u p e r fun.
LESSONS LEARNED FROM THIS PROJECT:
1. any inherently messy person (exhibit a: me) painting with glow-in-the-dark paint will unknowingly end up with it everywhere. i went to bed last night thinking i was in a crime scene investigation.
2. resin has wanderlust. sticky spots abound.
3. dealing with resin means your house will smell like a meth lab for 72 hours.
