| Acrylic GlazingA glaze is simply a thin, transparent layer of paint and glazing is simply building up color by applying thin, transparent layers one of top of another, dry layer.

|Greetings Fellow Earthlings!|
I am Sidhe Kalas. If I were rich I would get to be eccentric, but I am simply weird and a bit twisted. At least that’s what my kids tell me.
I grew up in a family of extremely talented artists. I drew stick people and not very well. I was kind of the artistic wall flower of the family. Then about 13 years ago I faced a rising tide of storms and decided not to drown. I learn to Kung Fu the monsters under the bed and ugly skeletons in the closet. One of my best Kung Fu moves was learning how to paint. Art quickly became a large part of my life. I am self taught and have tried many froms of art from, watercolor and drawing to assemblage and sculpting.
Some of My favorite mediums and supplies include, but are not limited to:
I will paint anything. I prefer walls and large canvas, but will happily use a cereal box, or the kids toys.
Paint (Lumier Acrylics, water colors, metallic’s).
Staedtler Pens and any Smudge proof pen or marker I can find.
Texture is also a must…..I love texture.
I also have an addiction to my sons sketches, and they tend to wind up in a lot of my art.
I am also the mother of four beautiful smart asses ( I'm so proud...sigh), I am married to a werewolf, it does make things interesting around the full moon. He is my soul mate and puts up with me embarrassing him in public so we've worked out perfectly for each other for nearly 15 years. And, when I am not doing art I am more than likely reading.
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and a few other oddity's as well. Ooh! And I love a good HOT pair of socks and red skittles. Aren't I amazing!
