The painting of the pub signs for NEBS is now in progress. Becke first brushed two base coats of a cream colour on the signs allowing them time to dry between the coats. Then it was time for the third and fourth coats which would be blended. She picked out no less than ten buckets of acrylic paint. She used a small fitch to do the painting. Becke worked quickly to allow her to do the blends wet into wet. The signs will be allowed to dry overnight before she starts into the glazes. When we did our workshops we often see students rush into wild colours with varying success. The key is to pick colours that go well together and make the blends subtle.
