Fluid Acrylics and Rain
I wanted to try a fresco treatment on the walls of my renovated bathroom, and the directions said to mix universal tint into joint compound. None of the home improvement centers or paint stores would do this for me, although they would have been happy to mix it up as paint. Nor would they sell me the universal tints so I could mix it myself.
The raindrops are in celebration of finally getting some rain on the last day of the driest June ever recorded in the Houston area. We live in a semi-tropical climate, and the normal rainfall here in June is 5". Previously, the driest June was .12" recorded in 1934. As of June 30, 2005 we had received .08". Last year June's total rain was 19". First the floods...then the drought!
