Thankyou Dennis....I've spent the past half hour trying to get the video to load. Can't get past 29 seconds so will have to try again later. By...that's a lovely looking little travel kit!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Val, I've made another video for you that is a very much smaller file for easier loading with your internet connection.
The first one was a HD version. Enjoy!

Great tutorial, thanks Dennis, you should have used the Magic Eraser in this demo too then you would probably have been able to lift off 99% of the colour

  :congrats:  :clap: :clap: Another excellent production!!  :yippee:  :clap: :clap:
This is amazing. I would never have thought this was possible. Now I know what to do with all those truly botched up bits of ??????
 :crazy2: Stand back...I've got a spray bottle and I'm not afraid to use it!!  :2funny:
This is going to save me quite a bit of paper while I'm practicing all these wonderful new techniques. I'm still focused mainly on the knife painting, its really quite amazing the effects you can achieve. I've also learned a few limitations of the knife. Once I get it sorted I'll have to try an actual picture.
 :parachute: Must finish up some of these other pieces first!
Thanks so much Dennis.  :flowers:
Cheers, Val

Dennis I love you!!!  Thanks for explaining and demonstrating so clearly ... and I thought the "mess" you made (all the colours together) would never "clean up".  You are a magician!  Trudie

 :wave: Hi Dennis...yes its me back again! While the internet is being kind I am going to try loading a couple of pictures this afternoon. I have another practice knife painting which actually turned out quite well, however...I had already painted a big blotch of red previously. So I am going to try removing as much of the red as I can and I'll post the two as soon as I'm done.
Cheers, Val
