    beautiful work….I am wondering how do you get the spray of water at the end of the painting to stay put and not run everywhere….love the detail in this one

  • Hi Linda…I just use a fine mist very lightly…it drys quickly with a hairdryer and then I might do it again…I guess I should have mentioned the hair dryer…Thankyou Linda xx
