Hi everyone… Happy Tuesday to you!
If there was a spy-cam in my studio, you would see me working away garbed in paint-splotched jeans and a t-shirt; probably a little paint in my hair, and definately some color on my fingers and hands. How do I clean my paint clad fingers? All ten are wiped on my splotched jeans and t-shirt.
Lynda from Pleasant Pickin’s has a better idea. She has created this beautiful soft effect by finger-painting the raised details.
[box] So Denise…here is a tip for you!
When I painted this piece I found it difficult to paint the raised panels without getting paint on the cream colour.
I decided to paint it with my fingers!!
Worked like a charm because you can feel the edges. And it gives it a cool, almost cloudy look.
This piece looks amazing Lynda and I L-o-v-e the soft faded effect! Unconventional tools and methods can create beautiful unique results!

And I’d like to know when’s the last time you finger-painted? Do you have any unconventional tips or painting methods? Chime in because I always love hearing from you!

Enjoy the day and happy painting!
