House Paint

I've been taking a little break from the blog, partly because of a busy teaching schedule, and partly because I've been S L O W L Y figuring out how to shoot, edit, and upload video from my iPad.

House PAINT from Jane Davies on Vimeo.

I have been using house paint in my paintings; its unique viscosity and consistency - a little more fluid than Golden Fluid Acrylics, but less so than the High Flow paints or acrylic ink - allows a particular kind of line to form from dripping it.  YES, it is compatible with acrylic paint.

I took paint swatches of about a dozen "favorite" colors to the paint store and found pretty good matches from the available color samples. I had them mix quarts of interior latex, eggshell finish, in  C2, which is a good quality house paint.
At a workshop last week.  The piece on the wall behind me features a turquoise scribble in house paint.  Both pieces of "Big Fat Art" are in process.
Have fun with it!!
NOTE:  I have been having trouble getting the above video to work properly.  While I am working that out, please see my FACEBOOK page, where it works.

Check out all the fabulous work available online now, created by North Country Studio Workshops Participants and Faculty.  Each piece is 6"x6", and is available for $66.
I donated four pieces to this fundraiser, one of which is still available.  There are pieces in many media, including ink on Yupo, ceramics, wood, textiles, painting, collage, and more.  This is a fabulous and affordable way to add to your art collection or buy a gift.  Or just ogle the eye candy.
