  •   amysol takes longer but I enjoy the process more than acrylic. 4w
  •   richardjoliver @amysol I love the palette of colors your using. Could you tell me which branch you prefer? The colors are so pastel and opaque. 4w
  •   amysol @richardjoliver thanks! I'm currently using a variety my gavs Gamblin and old holland. The vivid (red, green, blue) Gamblin colours are super opaque. 4w
  •   richardjoliver @amysol thanks Amy. I've used the gamlin 1980 colors which are nice. I do a lot of underpainting/glazing so I'm mixing all my own now. I can control the amount of transparency that way. Anyway, enough about me. Haha. Thanks for your reply and congratulations on the beautiful work. Looking forward to showing with you some day soon. X 4w

amysol this lucky silver necklace, hand picked pecans & one perfect persimmon to look at - from my sweet friend @iadornu
the rarest and truest gift in the world is friendship. Thankyou to my dear friends and family who tolerate my absence while I chug away at painting.. I miss you and think about you all the time. I'm eternally grateful to have a few people who get me and care. It's the best gift in the world. #merrychristmas #friendship

  •   dwntwnamybrwn @mandytsung @amysol do you think the precautions are disregarded more with acrylics because they're water-based? I'm a freakishly tidy painter (I think it's the Asian-mom's life-training) but still too nervous to practice work with oils much bc my internal alarm goes nuts and I want a respirator and the thickest work gloves I can find 😑😕 3mon
  •   mandytsung @dwntwnamybrwn I definitely think that's part of it. Probably bc lots of ppl think you have to use solvents and resin driers for oils which are definitely bad. I'm allergic to everything but straight oil so I only paint with linseed oil and try to mostly use non-toxic pigments. 3mon
  •   dwntwnamybrwn @mandytsung wow! it must've been hard to discover those allergies :\ but I didn't even know you could go a non-toxic route! I've been wanting to try out more permanent painting solutions, so I'll have to do some research! thanks 3mon
  •   mandytsung @dwntwnamybrwn And you can use certain colours that will help the painting dry faster, like umbers and iron oxides but also many others. 3mon
  •   faerynnova @dwntwnamybrwn if you're worried about the toxicity and using solvents for oils I actually use a walnut oil based paints (M. Graham) which is a lot thinner, less yellowing and doesn't need solvent just walnut oil to thin out! So that might be an option if you want a safer alternative 2mon
  •   dwntwnamybrwn @faerynnova oh, thank you for the info!!! @mandytsung and thank you as always!! happy holidays to everyone! 2mon
  •   anaisforlot Good to know ! 2mon
