Wet Glaze? Painting Disaster!


Things don’t go as planned as I paint a cake display at the diner. First the primer (acrylic latex house paint) makes the gouache bead up. Then I try covering the background with a blue-colored glaze, and everything melts. It’s a race to rescue the painting before the omelette arrives.

I love how you experiment and learn, and still manage to create a fun sketch; regardless of the fact that the primer tries to "buck you off."

Love this video… fun to see the change of direction — no such thing as failure!! I appreciate the creativity of the video itself as well!

I can relate to this. Not the experimentation or the use of latex. It's just that my paintings usually look like that point when you applied the glaze.

Since you seem to be experimenting with primers, Have you ever used Pelikan Plaka Casein paint for primer? https://www.pelikan.com/pulse/Pulsar/en_US.Store.displayStore.221730./the-plaka-paints-by-pelikan I think they were originally intended for sign writers and have seen some use in German schools, still, slowly falling out of use. Wondering if they'd be a fit as a primer being inexpensive, water-based casein paints.
