Dried out paint by Joni
So, tell me if this has ever happened to you?....
You search through your paints....looking for the perfect color to match your layout.....you find it...the perfect color.... So you open up the bottle AND.........the paint is a clumpy mess!!! This has happened more than once to me...and I was just throwing away the bottle of paint. Then I realized I was throwing $$ right in the trash. So here is what I do now!!!
Perfect color paint -- Actually opened the seal on a brand new bottle (ok, never opened but I may have had it a few years)
Yep, it's all dried out...this paint actually has some moisture in it...(some I've found to be even more dried out).
I dig some out using the non-brush end of a paint brush & spread it onto my item (chipboard in this case)
I wipe it all around with my finger (yep, finger painting....and I don't mind getting dirty!!)
Now here's the important step:
Put a layer of Diamond Glaze or other clear adhesive over it (this will keep the dry paint from flaking off.
This little piece was only for the background behind the little doggie so he wasn't floating off my layout.
