Not for long but long enough to have a go at the pumpkin that had the DS Watercolour Ground on it. I think it has worked quite well. I'll have the painting sit for another few days and then see. The rock had two coats of the Watercolour Ground and the lemon is a five minute paint. Certainly interesting!
I have two panels of timber waiting to be 'treated' with the DS W/C Ground. One was cut from a piece of wood cut up for our fire and the other is a panel made from 3 pieces of old floor boards from a verandah. E has used these boards for many projects, a desk to join onto one he already had, the missing top of a cupboard. The wood polishes up beautifully with E's magic hands....and perseverance! Again we'll see!
