OP home repair

It is always fun and educational to read how artists repurpose household or workshop items for their art. Recently, I heard of an artist who stated that if it wasn't at the hardware store, he didn't use it.

It is also possible to repurpose OP's.

This weekend, I inadvertently knocked off a flake of paint on the kitchen wall, leaving a small but obvious white spot on an otherwise reddish wall. I found that Sennelier permanent red, Neopastel burnt sienna, and a red Artist Loft as blender worked great.

They certainly are that! So far no one has noticed the impromptu repair and fortunately it is out of normal reach!

Sounds to me like a smart and fabulous job of color mixing!
