I gave up painting - but I'm back !
I'm so glad to have found this forum !! I did tole painting for many years and did craft shows and did fantastic - till the imports started coming in. I gave up . I bought my own wood - cut it - sealed it - painted it - added all the do-dads ... spent HOURS making something .... and I couldn't even compete with the price of the China stuff.I gave it up. I went on to do stained glass - did everything I Wanted to do - but tole on wood is my first passion. Now - I'm combining them - making windchimes with tole painted wooden tops and glass "clinkers" . LOL . I was just wondering what surface everybody likes to paint on. I'm looking forward to seeing pics in the gallery !!! I'll be posting mine soon. I'm happy to be back painting !!!
