Holy Exploding Plastic Bottles, Batman!

And this is why I have “studio” clothes….

Do you ever see interviews with artists and they’re wearing regular, clean street clothes?  I’m like “Really??  C’mon on, you NEVER get paint on your clothes (or your face or in your hair)?”

I bring this up because this just happened to me – I was trying something new with black acrylic paint in a plastic tube, with a fine line attachment, and after I’d finished, I squeezed the bottle to make sure that no paint was left in the metal Line Drawing Attachment.

It cracked open explosively, in my hand, over the table I was working at, and all over the floor.  Gaaaaaaaaahhhh, what a mess!  It took me about 20 minutes to get it all cleaned up.  It also made me laugh really hard, and, once again, be so VERY grateful for HAVING a studio.

Can you imagine if I’d been working at the dining room table, or in the living room???  (OK, or in bed?)  Yikes……..

      ha ha, yeah, it’s very slimming, I hear. I actually ended up having to cut a small chunk of my hair off, because the acrylic dries to absolute plastic……..sigh….
