Can't believe it!

I wanted to spray the gloss sealer on my Jingle Thyme sign yesterday. Took it outside, got the can and started spraying. I was gloss white PAINT! Not gloss SEALER. OMG! I grabbed the sign, ran inside and started rubbing it off with a wet paper towel. Then got the alcohol and lightly rubbed a few of the worse places. Got most of it off, but now I need to redo some of the shading too. (Memo to self: read the whole label, not just one word.) Luvs

OMG is right! I think we all just learned a lesson from your experience.

Oh crap!! Oh, I hate that so much for you! Kinda reminds me of the times (notice plural) that my 2 yr old painted over my projects last year! Remember??? Gosh, I hope you can get it fixed. That just bites. It was sooo darn cute too. Let us know how it turns out. I'm just so upset for you! ~Anj

Thanks for the sympathy! I think I can save it, just need to do some touch up painting where I rubbed pretty hard on it and took some of the shading and detail lines off. The background will look more like I speckeled it with tiny specks of white. One place sort of looks like the Milky Way in the background! I actually thought about spraying a bit more on and just saying it was a FOGGY night! LOL

Gosh Oddie, this is nothing compared to having the car, shoes and dog painted! OMG! Hope they were able to get all that off.
