  11. I love the video with the 10 resist techniques. I just bought the Faber-Castell Glaze to try with some of the Distress Paints. Should look great on some mixed media canvas work. It is nice to know that we don’t have to buy all these products to get the same results. More $ to spend on embellishments! :-)
