Hit the Jackpot!

WhooHoo! I have a friend who was leaving her teaching job at a local school and when she went to collect her things she asked if I'd like to come along. Why? She said they had a whole cupboard full of paints just waiting for a home! Holy cow!! She wasn't kidding. They had regular acrylics, fabric, and other specialty paints - boxes of them. I walked out of there with a very nice collection of Americana, Ceramcoat, and Decoart Metallic paints, almost every one of them in sealed bottles.
Now...I need more paints, brushes, and books, like I need a hole in the head but I can never say no to free art supplies. The beauty of this was that several of the paints were discontinued colors. To me this is as good if not better than winning the lottery. Life is good!

Way to go, Krafty!! You can never have too many brushes or paint. Just think of all the things you are going to make with your stash...

The lighthouses sound great Lisalisa. If you browse on here a bit, you will find other projects on fan blades that one of our other members, Gail, painted. She also painted lots of wonderful chairs too. Welcome to the forum, hope you will share pics of your projects with us.
