Stick to Quality Materials
I painted this last summer and by December I noticed that the colour on the couch was fading! I had used a little set of paints given to me, so I took the offending paints and pitched them all in the trash. I stick to buying Winsor & Newton, although Gamblin and Van Gogh are quality paints too. I am repainting the couch now (you can see the right end has been redone) but it’s a good thing that I hadn’t already sold it!
