I finally got a rake brush!! I'm so excited to give it a try. Need to find me a santa man to paint a beard on. ha Hope I get some good results. Better start practicing. Christmas is only 8 months away! ha Any pointers on how to load it or hold it? Paint consistancy? Anything? ~Anj

Anj, I know you are going to love this brush. I don't know if there is a right way to use it but I like to thin my paint to the consistency of milk. When you first touch it to the surface it may bleed on you so be prepared to either lightly blot it or use your fingers to knock it back a bit.

After my trip to paint with Margot Clark my hubby found out he needed a quadruple bypass so I have been at the hospital everyday the past week. Today I took my painting tote with me with the intentions of painting while there but he is now able to get up but still can't do much for himself. I think he likes the extra attention - which he deserves since it is usually him catering to me.

Have fun with that brush.

Oh no Bebe....That's really scary! Sounds like he's doing ok now. Hope he's 100% soon. You take care of him so he can get back to taking care of you! ;) Thanks for the tips on the brush. I'm gonna try to practice with it this afternoon. Take care! We'll be thinking about you. Keep us updated on DH. ~Anj
