Well, nuts! A couple of weeks ago, I did some envelopes with acrylic paint on them and then mailed them out without taping over the peel & stick address labels I put on them. Some had pilots and planes with  brown paint sponged over them. Some had multicolored bubbles all over. Absolutely none of them was acknowledged as having been received. I thought this was strange because most of my mailart friends let me know when stuff arrives f rom me, so I’m assuming the address labels didn’t adhere to the paint.

Ifyou DID get one of these from me, please let me know. Thanks!

Oh, so sad...'tis true: self-sticks, postage stamps, rubber stampings, etc. do NOT adhere to acrylic painted surface ('cause acrylic is really just slippery plastic)

I sometimes paint the address on the enveloppe. takes some time, but it doesn't peal off.....
