BEYOND THE LAUNCH GIVEAWAY 2 - Proceed Glass Bead Texture


So you thought there were only 

The 12 Days of Artistically Speaking
Grand Launch Hallapoloosa


well....here's the deal
we are having soooo much fun giving things away...
we have added even more wonderful ways to win...
with the

12 Days of Artistically Speaking 
Beyond The Hallapoloosa

we will continue to present extraordinary giveaways each and every day 
until the Sunday the 20th of December



The fantastic loot (valued at approx. $10,000 so far) has been generously donated by talented artists, teachers, vendors and manufacturers. You will not believe the wondrous items they have donated to share with you! 

Today's Giveaway is...drumroll please:

1 Gallon of Proceed Rough Glass Bead Texture ($75)



A clear acrylic medium containing glass beads that is used to create accents of jewel-like reflected light Proceed® Rough Glass Bead Texture is supplied in a trowelable consistency, but may be thinned with water if desired. Apply directly over base painted substrates or over Proceed Textures in a single coat. For best results, spread and ‘‘float’’ the beads with a flat trowel to achieve a single layer of beads on the surface. Applying with the edge of the trowel can result in a ‘‘scratched’’ look. The freshly applied film will appear to be cloudy, but clears upon drying. When applied as a single layer of beads, the resulting film will have the maximum clarity and the reflective effects of the beads will be strongest. Thicker films provide a different look and will take on a more ‘‘frost-like’’ appearance. Full cure and water resistance is developed in 2 - 4 weeks. It may be tinted with Proceed Dispersions (transparent pigments are recommended), or Proceed Slow Drying Acrylics and Proceed Metallic Mediums. Download an application PDF. You can buy the Proceed line from dealers around the US.  This info from The Faux Shop.
