The nice people at Chalkola sent me this set of 32 acrylic paints. They came with a plastic palette, a palette knife, 16 different brushes, and a sponge.
I bought this wooden buoy and decided I didn’t like the faded colors. I really like orange and navy blue, and thought it would be fun to repaint the buoy. I used a 3/4″ brush by Robert Simmons and mixed Indian Yellow and Vermillion Red to create the orange color, and to make navy blue, I used Ultramarine Blue, Mars Black, Paynes Gray and white. The set came with a navy blue, but I had already used the entire tube on a lamp.
The paints are really nice, cover with one coat and look great. I have been using these to repaint bird houses, lamps, and the back of a large periwinkle painted stand. I wanted to share a video of Lake Erie at sunset, as I find it so relaxing and it’s truly helping me not think about my arthritis. I hope you enjoy it too.
