Hey Rob, Chicago is just fine, right now the weather is awesome, cool and brezzy. I suppose it will get too hot before too long. I know where Aurora is, I'm from the far south suburbs, close to Ind and Will county.
Nice job on the raised wallpaper. I absolutely love what you are doing with the foils. Never used adicolor anything but Glacis, love that flat glaze, not for everything but it has its place.
Never tried to crack Versiplast. If I do a crackle I'll use Kathy's Bella Sabia. That stuff has never failed me. But I will see if I can get my hands on some of the Stone FX I am always willing to try something else. Attached is a crackle I did a few weeks ago. We painted a rich color tan then crackled and then with Perfetto's Umber did a colorwash. Client happy!
BTW I just ordered the sample pack of foils from you. Can't wait til they arrive............ it will be play time!
