    Just posting so people get to see it

    I don’t do a great job posting my art so not a lot of people see my work. This piece has been sitting in my studio for a while and I just want to show share it with people:)

    Patch for soft masonite

    Replaced several pieces of masonite on my Mom's house. Getting some soft spots around nail holes on the new boards and at edges of the old boards. I used Dap DryDex in the past with Kilz over it. These new boards are 4 years old and being soft at the nail holes really worries me. I know it would be great to go Hardie, but this is a 40 year old house in a depressed area. I am just trying to keep it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Help with finding discontinued Guerra paint?

    Guerra Paint recently discontinued making their Channel Black Pigment Dispersion. Its heavily used in an ongoing project of mine, and I only have a little bit left. Does anyone know if I can find it anywhere else-3rd party distributors, artists (like maybe you?) who have a bottle and are willing to let it go, etc.?

    Oil sticks

    Please what's the drying and curing time for oil sticks? Is it true that it takes up to a year to be ready for varnish? Thanks
