|These were the results of my first efforts which|
|And just because I couldn't see them behind all of the clutter on the stove, |
I could still smell them! ><
|I decided to try the water-based Glass and Ceramic tile paint as a base which I let dry to the touch and followed it up with assorted acrylic paints and glazes.|
|This is the first coat of the water-based glass paint|
|I then added the next color of Sky Blue acrylic paint to the tiles applied onto a damp sponge and smoothed out. My advise is to use small amounts of paint applied directly to the sponge, and then stipple it onto the surface.|
|This is yet another brown added to the surface and each product was dabbed on with a damp sponge.|
|dab, dab, dab....|
|..... dab, dab, dab, .....|
|DAB! - DAB!- DAB!|
I used way too much brown and so I removed some of it with a clean damp sponge
dab, dab, dab....

|On the worktable is a knife block which I removed from a Hallmark Christmas ornament. The lidded casserole is yet another |
Jason Feltrope pottery piece.
|The kitchen sink contains a bowl full of ripe, red tomatoes which I made from fake flower parts and glass paint.|
|Under the kitchen sink you can just make out the yellow washing up gloves, another wonderful gift from |
the Very Creative hands of

And a FINAL WORD TO ALL OF MY WONDERFUL Studio E FOLLOWERS:
Thanks to the technical skills of my WONDERFUL DAUGHTER SAMANTHA; she was able to get my old comment section back to what it was, AND restore my Avatar, however in reversing the format, your previously posted comments were automatically deleted. :(( I am VERY SORRY ABOUT THAT, however, I remember all of the nice things that each of you have said, and once again,
