Just Wondering!

Remember Rub 'n Buff?  I found several tubes in some of my stash the other day and wondered if Gilder's Paste is just a revised version of it.

Gilder's paste is a colored, oil based paste (at least it smells oil based) that is used to add color to a variety of media. So far I haven't had much luck using the paste.  It's not so much luck but that I don't like what I've done with it.  (But it seems likes a really good idea and the range of colors is great.)

At the conference this past June I received a couple of charms that had Gilder's Paste on them.  I apologize for the quality of the pictures and the fact that I don't have the names of the artists who created them.  But, it is 2:23 in the morning and I am sitting on the tub in my daughter's master bath with my laptop on my lap.   My husband is in the next room sleeping soundly, which obviously I am not.  (And the artist's information is at home.)

( I like what they did with the paste.)

It's been a few days since I posted and what better time to accomplish something than when I can't sleep.  Well, better get back to bed.  In four and a half hours I have to get the grandchildren off to school.

Just a little grandchild note......the   granddaughter greeted us with "Yay, the Grandpa with the chubby belly is here."  What are the chances he's going to eat lunch tomorrow?  Speaking of eating..... I'm hungry.

Foot note :  The top charm belongs to Candice Kiesaw at CC designs art jewelry and the bottom charm comes from Barking Dog Gallery

Arrrgh! I hate insomnia! I was awake for awhile last night. I didn't get up, though, I just laid there and made lists in my head.

Yeah, I remember when I could sleep like a log. Those days are gone. Another perk of old age. Oh well, not much can be done about it.

Hey, Alice, by comparing these to the ones I got, maybe I can help you out a bit with identifying the artists who made those two (and include links to their own blogs)!

It looks like the round one with green in a swirl was by Candice Kiesow.

And the one with the dragonfly looks like the one you told me you got from the artist at Barking Dog Gallery (whom I'd said I was sorry to have not met in person to exchange with).

Here's hoping you're getting caught up on sleep!
