You could be right Liz!
I've tried Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Indian beer and I liked them all!
Maybe when I get off my diet I'll take your advice. But for now it's  :coffee:
Thanks

This time I tried to blend, then I tried to glaze but its not much better than the folds in material attempt.

Brian,

I admire you for attempting new things and sharing your results with us.  Not all projects turn out as we hope they would. 

Keep trying because most of what you do turns out excellently.

To highlight the low humidity problems here I filled an old  drinking glass about 6" high with water on Monday to keep my acrylics brushes in. This morning I went out and almost half of the water had evaporated,

Keep in mind it might take several glazes until you get what you're looking for.
The time it (a work) takes is the time it takes.
