No, no Mod Podge [I had to look that up and did recognize the label from my various forays into different art stores].
no sir, that is a blended acrylic varnish --- different varnish types to get something not glossy but not too satiny. Years of playing with the plastic goo [because I never cared for oils] has left me with a few recipes under my hat and a love for glazing layers of washes and varnishes. tmi?
I had a great message from you, Neil, thank you, and you will hear more from me soon. Til then: what does "wabi-sabi" mean? It's written in my notebook as something you said but I included no meaning! Duh.
Hi Neil! I'm glad it arrived safely and you like it. I love those little envelopes, so mysterious and small. I bought a whole bunch on etsy.com so I have plenty but thanks for your offer. They really challenge me to work in small designs. Take care!
Ah, there's more! Yes, those are two of my 6 bookshelves - I'm an avid (eclectic!) reader. Thanks for the compliment cher %_^
BTW, I grew up in Princeton (the Uni. town) - there was a beautiful, classically columned bldg. called Clio Hall where I often went to see films when I was a teenager. The most vivid memory I have is of seeing A Clockwork Orange there...that was a trip indeed!
Apparently, we both assumed the friendship and the IUOMA engine didn't register our preference via our heightened level of communication! I suppose it's a good thing the computer still can't read minds yet!
