I have been trying out different materials and seeing what I like. Recently I’ve been painting on linen panels with an alkyd primer. I really liked the way the oil paint behaved. But they are way too expensive for my painting habit so I’m making my own….
I went to a big box store, bought two 4×8 sheets of masonite, and had them cut it in specific sizes. The guy was great and I came home with a pile ready to paint. We did this project it out side. We? Marcus (my hubby) took charge… and wow – two of us did it really fast.
Marcus is a real professional . He painted the oil primer on the panels. Fine with me. I carried the panels to lay them in the sun to dry. Sherman Williams is 7 miles from my house, they sell the primer .
Here is the drying area. We had a thunderstorm in the morning so the blue tarp on the wet grass created a nice drying “table.” As you can see the sun is moving fast.
