And it, frankly, is not that hard.
It is a mix of good, bad, fun, sad, disappointments and successes. But complexity has a tendency to make anyone LOOK bad. We feel that way, and appear that way, because adulthood is complex. We look silly not admitting life is complex and in its complexity, while harrowing at times, it is a joy of multiple experiences and a series of blood pumping moments.

We look even sillier trying to reach back to youth and, well, everything associated with youth. She makes the case that our youth-fixated society is a symptom of something worth worrying about: Resigning yourself to a life … anything that begins with those words sends a shiver down my spine.
What do I believe? Do not go gently into the good night … those are the words adulthood should embrace. We suggest the best years of your life are with the young.

We suggest that dreams are for the young. We suggest impossibility is possible with the young. Adults today have some wacky perspectives on adulthood.
Far too many older adults are too busy being angry to understand that adulthood is great.
I store the dried piece while it is still attached to the page protector plastic by rolling them into a cotton rag once dried. I find old bed sheets and tear them into bands wide enough to accommodate the sheets. The cloth makes for good protection and sticking protection for storing until future use.
When I finish any particular art piece I find mat Mod Podge is particularly easy to peal off and yet an excellent ground for my work.

They are too soft and flexible for use in making jewelry, and the thermo plastic nature can create a softer and potentially tacky surface, which would not be a good property in a piece of jewelry. Reply mary December 23, at I have a acrylic paint skin on aluminum foil, rather than paper or a plastic. Is it possible to remove the skin to use on polymer clay?
Thank you in advance. Scott Bennett December 28, at 9: So give it a try. For the easiest method, we recommend using glass or HDPE plastic. You could glue the skin to properly cured polymer clay. Reply Penny Henderson February 25, at 1: Scott Bennett February 27, at Thinning too much with water could also create a less flexible film.
Otherwise, skins made with our Mediums or Gel Mediums will tend to be quite flexible. Try using our Soft Gels or Regular Gels spread applied onto a piece of glass. You can blend them with our paints for added color. You can also make skins from just our paints without Mediums, but adding Mediums or Gel Mediums will save you some of the expense of using all paint.

We are not sure why you are not getting smooth skin surfaces. If you want the upper surface smooth then it is best to apply either a very leveling and low crazing medium such as our GACor squeegee on a thicker Gel Medium such as our Regular or Heavy Gel.
To create more translucency you would just use more Medium and less paint. Reply Chuck June 15, at I am having problems with the dollops cracking while drying. It looks like acrylic paint blended with GAC could solve this issue for me. Do you think that would work?
