awe i,m chuffed :) :)
hey can anyone help me out with how to glaze in oils. am painting the seashells. do i have to let my shell dry before i glaze?.

Yes.  If you don't, the glaze will interact with the paint layer below it.  A glaze is optical mixing which gives a different result from mixing paint.

By putting layers of transparent paint on top of each other, your eyes do the mixing.

That's the best way to learn the 'tric', I think.
I never glazed anything, but that class is on my wish list to, after I did all those other classes I'm busy with. ;)
