I abandoned the tube of Australian Salmon Gum and mixed my own shade of coral from one of my favourite acrylic paint colours – Jo Sonja’s Rose Pink. So much better!
However, I did still struggle with the paint application. I felt like the foam brush that I was using was soaking up the paint and not laying down a thick and opaque enough coat of paint. So I literally painted this light coral shade a million times over just to build up the opaqueness. And yes I did switch brushes but I was still having a bad day with the consistency of paint, so it took a while.
I’m starting to think that my tube of titanium white is a little thicker than it needs to be. I might have to switch brands.
