Red clogs

My old, beaten-up clogs. This was a much rougher surface than I usually use, and I didn't like it much. (I usually use Yarka extra-fine linen. This was "fine," as opposed to "extra fine," and the difference was laughable. It was like the difference between the texture of silk vs. burlap. Okay, that's a little exaggerated, but it was close! They need at least one step in between.)

I, too, am super sensitive to my surface. I either love it or loathe it! Funny how we become so attaches. I think if you like to slather on paint loosely, you like a 'toothier' sort of canvas. For the most part, the smoother the better for me, too!

This will go well with the one you did of your husbands spanky shiny spit polished black shoes that I loved so well.

I like the more textured surface and have a hard time with panels.
It's probably good to paint on cardboard, tissue paper and everything in between to keep the skills up.
