Wreck that palette

A few weeks ago one of my favourite artists, Chris Guest, released a free vinyl sticker. They do free art prints a couple of times a year but this was, as far as I know, this was the first time they’d done a sticker. From the announcement post:

“One of my favourite things is to share my art with everyone, so really excited about seeing where they all end up all over the world!! Enjoy!!”

Some people have put them in public spaces and I looked at a few but I’m selfish. I wanted it somewhere that I would get to see it all the time. I could spin up a yarn about needing to be inspired but the truth is I just like looking at nice things. I’ve had one of the Red Grass Games gen one wet palettes for a few years now but it was long ago tarnished with stickers. Plain surfaces just aren’t welcome in this space

First step is to strip all the old stickers off and then get all the glue gunk off it with the high-tec option of a wet wipe.First step is to strip all the old stickers off and then get all the glue gunk off it with the high-tec option of a wet wipe.
The orange needs to go, it'll clash with the sticker. The surface needs scuffed up a bit before priming. 160 grit paperThe orange needs to go, it'll clash with the sticker. The surface needs scuffed up a bit before priming. 160 grit paper
Just needs a coat of varnish and that's an hour well wasted I think.Just needs a coat of varnish and that's an hour well wasted I think.
