NY or NQ....? Sometimes it was hard to distinguish between the two. I understand why Hollywood production companies film in Manchester's Northern Quarter now.
New York could almost be a sister city to Manchester; and some of the buildings are so alike that I'm certain, given a little research, that they probably share architects or blueprints.
And there was me listening to songs thinking that there were no bricks in NYC and it was literally just a 'concrete jungle'. So so far from the truth.
We just got these fantastic spray shelters in! Now you have no excuse to get at those projects that you've got waiting around the house.
We have a small size to protect your workspace while you spraypaint lamps, wood projects, and other art pieces. The large size is perfect for furniture projects, refinishing doors, or anything else you can imagine.
35"W × 30"D × 39"H

I always post photos late; so here's some groovy photos from a few weeks ago at the TVAA Gallery reception in Dallas (perfect for #tbt 🔙 a day early lol). This month's exhibition is a phenomenal display of art. Stop by the gallery when you can... You won't be disappointed.
Many thanks to everyone who came and to the artists I met... Thanks for your support and thanks for creating! We all need one another! 😀 💜 Artists, fine art, friends, laugher and wine... What else do you need? 😉 (Swipe left)

🔶 Here is our Posca Product Tester @prairiepariah's review of the markers we gave her to test out: "I was thrilled to test out the new batch of Posca Markers for @artistsemporium - my idea was to see how well they worked as a medium to personalize a yoga mat. How well do the markers draw on a rubber mat? Does the colour transfer on the hands and feet when dry? How sustainably and practical are they for this kind of project? Here are my findings, as well as some process photos and a before and after shot of the washing:
1. Posca markers are nontoxic, water-based paint in the body of a marker. They worked beautifully on the mat. As you can see, the colour transferred clear and the marks I made were crisp. For an annoying, inconsistent and repelling surface as a rubber yoga mat, the markers were bold enough to withstand the material. It wasn’t hard to be creative with these fantastic markers. I loved how bold the gold and black turned out, and found that the thicker sizes were the best for the mat.
2. I let the mat dry for a week, then ran a hot hair dryer over it before I attempted to use it in my daily practice. After a few weeks of testing I unfortunately found that the black ink transferred on my hands and feet when I began to sweat. The transfer was minimal, and it was only the black that did. The blue, gold, white and mauve held up perfectly!
3. The ink did not affect the integrity and grip of the mat 👍
4. In the end I feel that if I were able to set the ink properly in the mat then it would not transfer. I’ve yet to find a better method of doing that, since I do not want to heat treat it with an iron and melt it. If anybody has any suggestions let me know! If you decide to clean your mat do not use anything other than gentle warm water and a mild soap. Avoid scrubbing.
Thank you @artistsemporium for letting me be your artistic guinea pig!"
