Scrumptious canapes, good music and of course the ART! This turned out to be a very enjoyable afternoon. (The bottom two photos show my entries 'The End Of An Era' and 'Dream Lamp').

Just seen this article in the local paper - was flattered that one of my sand paintings (bottom right photo) was used in the images from last years Mid Winter Mingle.

I started this trial on 12 December 2021. Six months on, I looked at the tiles after cleaning off all the sticky residue from the black masking tape. There was slight yellowing of the exposed area on the white and purple tiles but this is not easy to see in the photo. The neutral tiles showed no noticable change to the colours but the varnish has attracted a lot of dust/dirt, so I would definitely not use varnish on items intended for outdooors.

Today turned out to be a great day, I sold two mosaic pictures. My ‘Poppy’ mosaic that was part of the ANZAC display in the Whangamata Information Centre and ‘Aroha Nui’ (with after glow) from the Whangamata Club. I'm feeling elated 😊

I started this trial on 12 December 2021. Three months on, I looked at the tiles. There was no change to the coloured tiles. On the neutral tiles, the varnish has attracted dust but there was no change to colours.
