It's no big secret....I love spray paint. I learned how messy it can be when I had the job of repainting our lawn chairs as a teenager. Until 2006, I considered spray paint to be for refinishing furniture or red wagons. Then one weekend when I was away with friends for a self-imposed art retreat, my friend Lisa Hoffman pulled out a few cans for a project. I had to go outside, in the rain, under a tent, and try the paint with my stencils in a journal. I was hooked! I loved the randomness that spray offers, and the quick drying so you can move stencils around swiftly - placing, spraying, repeating. Once the paint gets too built up on the stencil I figured out you could monoprint it off. Flip and rub. For me, and the way I work, its hard to separate spray paint from stencils, but for today I'm just nodding to one of my favorite supplies: spray paint. Stencils will be presented later. I recently learned that Liquitex (who have some really nice new acrylic based spray paints) is based right here where I live...same town! Wouldn't it be fun to get on their payroll somehow?
