Can you help a newbie to OSP with a ??
I have some OSP laminated sheets, some Folk Art paints, and a video and am "trying" to teach myself OSP. Here's my question. Last night I was "practicing" on the laminated sheet for the 2nd time. In the video and the instruction book I have, it says to double load the brush and blend on the palette till the brush is loaded 2/3 full. Got that down, but then it says not to go back to blending and only pick up a little paint when needed. Here's the problem--my brush seemed to get dry & sticky. The only mention of using water is in the beginning just to wet the brush and then gently wipe on a paper towel. How can I keep the brush from doing that while I'm practicing?? Do you never go back and blend again on the palette after the initial loading?
Many thanks for the help. I'm excited about trying to learn OSP, but it seems a little harder than Donna makes it look! I'll probably have more questions down the road...especially on that "wiggle, wiggle, wiggle" technique (LOL!)
