The repaint is just marvelous Harriet!
Do you have any advice as to where one might go for some instructions on how to get started on learning to repaint? I'm not asking so much about the artistry. Instead, I'm interested in the technical aspects-- for example, what paints, or other types of media one uses; what tools; whether one uses a sealant afterwards, and so on. I realize that you may have some "trade secrets" you are not eager to share. If so, I apologize and I do not mean to pry. But any information you could offer, or even just a link to a set of instructions and guidelines that seem sensible to you, that would be so helpful and much appreciated!
