Here is my predicament; first I used masking tape and I was a bit too thorough with the GAC 500 to get clean edges and took forever lifting the masking. Oh my fingertips... uggh. That's fine these things happen, and I got very clean edges so I am happy with that.
Then for reasons foreign to my brain I choose to use mosaic glass tiles which need splitting with hammer, into squares, little squares... do I decide to use this sparingly, NO, I end up having to do some MATH, and from my calculation I need 16 more BOXES of these little glass suckers! There are approx. 180 in each box, I need 2976 tiny squares!!!
To complicate matters I decide to place them onto my canvas in a cross hatch patterns, one at a time (paint picture in head of me sitting on an old tub of gesso, well sometimes leaning or laying on my stomach on the tub so I am a few inches off the surface of my canvas). NOT COMFORTABLE! NECK PROBLEMS? YES!
I also bought these tiles a while back and needing more of the same tiles I find out they are no longer in stock... where do these tiles originate? Some place called Monheim, GERMANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????? Just grrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeaaaaaatttttttttttt......................
Excuse my bitching but why didn't I choose to use little stick on tiles or macaronis or I don't know, anything but these freakin glass tiles!?
This is going to take a while.
