Hi again Rebecca,
Sure you can print my photos, but after you see some of the albums on yahoo you'll want some of those too.
I usually don't get to pratice until late in the evenings and on weekends,.
I have 3 kids, 17g, 14b, 14b they keep me very busy, but at the same time they are doing things on their own so I can do some painting.
Have fun exploring the yahoo site.
Let me know what you think.
Marcia

Tonight I tried painting on a mirror from the Dollar Store just to see if it could be done. It worked OK, but I wanted to seal it. I only had spray sealer, so I did a quick coat and then tried to take off what I did not want it on. It does not look the greatest. My only other ideas for next time are to not seal it at all or else use a brush on sealer over the painting itself, trying to get as little on the mirror itself as possible. Any other ideas anyone?

I almost did not want to post a picture, but I thought it would give everyone a better idea of the sealing dilemma.

I think I should go back to the Dollar Store and get some more mirrors. Eventually if I can get enough things painted, I would like to go to a craft fair. I will just have to figure out what kind of prices to put on things. I will probably have vases, mirrors, jars, and candle holders, and anything else I can come up with by then.

Mirror sealant

I couldn't see the picture you posted, but I keep thinking that there is a specific sealant for glass. I'm trying to remember what it is...maybe someone else knows what it is and if not, I'll look for it and then post it for you. I know several women who have used it when they have painted dishes, I'll ask. If you want to start over on the mirror, just scape it off with a flat razor and then clean.

I think it's great that you're getting things from the Dollar Store. The less money spent, the more money you can make when you sell! That's just "crafty" business sense!LOL

Sealants

Hi-Shine or Extra Thick Sealants by Plaid should work. They dry completely clear. Hope that works for you.

Thanks for the tip about sealants--I will have to check that out!

I am definitely a bargain shopper--I plan on just using the Dollar Store and garage sale finds for most of the things I paint. I am a stay at home mom, so we don't have a lot of extra money to spend as we try to pay down our debt!

I did not even think about the issue of sealants BEFORE I started on the mirror! HEHE! Hopefully I have learned my lesson!

Loved your mirror, I need to get over to the dollar store because I'm starting to run out of things to paint here at home. My hubby say's that if it doesn't move watch out cause I just might paint it...
Well I haven't painted for 2 day's so I need to get going with it. Take care and loved the pattern you used on your mirror.
