Good morning all!
I had mentioned previously that I had matted and framed a large pastel and hung it in my house a couple of days ago....only to realize that I had pastel dust on the inside of the glass. Well, yesterday afternoon, took the whole thing apart, cleaned the glass, gave the pastel some good hard whacks on the back, put it all back together, hung it up and guess what.....yup.....still more pastel dust on the glass....arrrrrgh!! Guess I'll either have to add more distance between the pastel and glass (this is only single matted) or spray with fixative.
Hopefully, in my travels today I'll get to the art supply store. Need to pick up gum arabic as I'm itching to try some of the techniques from Katherine's thread "Pastel/mixed media".
Hope everyone is having a good day/afternoon/and or evening....dependent upon your location
See you in the threads!
