I always find it funny that it takes hours to create a video that is only minutes long. While the process isn't difficult, like many things there is a learning curve and it can take a bit longer than expected to achieve the desired results.
As with anything, I need to go through the process several times so that I am familiar. My problem is that it is months between videos and sometimes I forget how I did certain things or some of the processing steps. Once it is completed, I am usually pretty happy with the results, and I vow to do more, but sometimes life gets in the way and I don't do another one for quite a while. Hopefully that will change soon.
In any case, I did get the video on the process for the Faux Rusty Gears completed yesterday. (YAY!)
Although in the beginning of it, I was nervous, once I got to teaching I felt much better and I did OK. At least it is a good starting point for you all to learn the process. It came out to be about half an hour long, and I hope that it helps you all understand the easy process of this really amazing look that the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics give these gears. I would love to hear your feedback.
Today I am finishing up the three new patterns that I have been working on and getting them up on the site. I also plan to send out a newsletter to subscribers, so watch for it in your emails. It is another busy and beautiful day here, and one I am sure I will enjoy.
You can watch the video here:

There are many other videos that both painters and woodworkers will enjoy and learn from. I hope you enjoy them!
Happy Thursday to you all! :)
