It's lovely! Can you really do all those first day layers on in four hours?!!! Thin coats? Lots of blow drying?

Why yes! I am the queen of 'wait until the last minute' plus I have little patience for mundane things such as drying. So I've learned to push- push- push- the envelope. It's backfired one or twice. Lots of blow drying. Primer, black paint and Wunda size are all thin and blow dried between.The foil sorta seals it all in.The satin clear is thick. It wasn't soft still but not fully cured when I did the metallic plaster so the stencil adhesive started to pull it off so I blow dried it more then put it outside to lower the adhesive tack. Once that was done a thick glossy coat sealed it all.

amazing. truly amazing. you say you have little patience but anything taking that many layers demands something along the lines of patience!

Stunning! Can't wait to see this in person. I love your process and the way you explain it. You are a teacher to the core!
