Wishes Come True

Sometimes, Grey can be the new Black, and there’s something about Charcoal Grey, Mustard, and White that really grabs me . . . how about you?

Gluing down super-skinny shapes like these hexagon outlines can be a real pain;  the ever-dreaded glue ooze is nearly impossible to avoid, along with the telltale shiny snail tracks it leaves behind.  The secret to success is to use Claudine Helmuth’s Multi Matte Medium applied as sparingly as possible with a needle nose applicator.  Then, as soon as you lay down the piece, blot firmly with tissue.  This glue dries matte and you’ll never see where you goofed.    Even though cameras don’t pick up anything shiny, you’ll have to trust me:  there are no snail trails to be found on this piece. 

LOVE that glue!
