    Me too Linda, I work with all different kinds and love to try new products on my pieces. Right now I am hooked on chalk paints, so much fun to work with! Can't wait to try Van Gogh!

      Really... Wow! I was going to use the chalk paint on a bathroom vanity cabinet. Hmmm.. I have to get some and try it out.
