Gentle Reminder

April 17th-Thursday, at 6:30, our guest artist is Colleen Reynolds.  She will be using a new product called, Brusho for her demo.  Colleen  On Colleens website she has provided a link to a youtube demo on Brusho that will answer any concerns you may have in regards to this product.  The colors are brilliant and they give your paintings a real POP.  There is a certain way to handle the product however: because the product is an extremely fine crystal dye/paint, it does float in the air, so you should never open the lid.   Simply use a pin to prick a small hole in the top.  This allows the crystals to be shaken lightly onto your palette.  It is also advised, that because of the way the product needs to be used, it doesn't work to share a bottle with a friend.  It's not like any other medium you have ever tried.  It is none toxic, and if you handle it as instructed, you don't have to worry about breathing it; if you have concerns.  So come and check it out this week at our Thursday meeting.
