Wow! I actually used real paint to complete a few projects. I painted 2 serving trays and an enormous shelf to sell at a fundraiser for the preschool that I work at. It was a lot of fun to get out the paints & brushes, but kind of stressful because I'm used to moving things around and changing things easily with my digital work! Always good to bring a little challenge into life and try something different for a change. Hope these make big bucks for the preschool!
