I add the texture by applying several layers of crystal lacquer to the painted "tiles" while leaving the painted "grout" flat. This is the same time-consuming technique I use on my original paintings, so these "prints" are more than just prints. I work with very tiny brushes and a stand-up magnfiying glass to create these 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" magnets!
First Friday was this past weekend and I sold a bunch more magnets. I've been working hard on a new project for December First Friday, so I haven't had time to produce any new larger paintings. (Tomorrow, I'll post a preview of the project I'm working on.) In the meantime, I'm glad I have these little magnets as something new in my studio/gallery! People who are curious about my style and technique, but can't purchase a larger painting at this time, have found the perfect solution with these little magnets!
