Removing Paint from Hand Painted Jacket

Rose Floral on Fabric

Cheryl, what are your recommendations for removing fabric paint from an ooooppss spot on a gorgeous jacket that I painted. It is a white cotton blend jacket that I painted these GORGEOUS roses and florals on.

And then... I got the lower end of the front on the jacket into my palette! I tried EVERYTHING and could not get it out. Broke my heart- it really turned out beautifully and I ruined it. It would be good to know for the next time.

The beautiful design is by Kathy Whiton, CDA.

Thank you! Tina

Painting over stained wood

by Colette
(Ontario)

I have a new raw wooded box that I am going to stain. I want to hand paint decorative pinstriping and lettering over top. What is the correct process? Can I stain the whole box first and then paint the decorative acrylic over top? I do plan on first painting a prime coat of gesso before the decorative acrylic. I will finish with a clear protective finish coat over the complete box.
Thanks, Colette

Terra Cotta CLay Pot, How to Mask Off the Top Band

by L.O.
(Pittsburgh)

I want to paint a terra cotta pot with a different color band on the top. What is the best way to get a nice clean line?

I tried masking tape under the line but with the curve under the band of body of the pot, it is difficult. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
L.O.
