A tip that everyone probably already knows about

I am so new and I am sure this is a common tip but I accidentally got some black paint in my glue and just a little bit made the bright blue shop towels dry dark grey (or gray depending on what version of English you are speaking) It makes it so much easier to paint something that has a dark grey color than a bright blue one!

That one is new to me!  It sounds like a good idea.

I guess that's why the primer for a car isn't bright blue... or pink... or hot orange.

Thanks!

Hey Glue Jockey,

I'm new as well and I'm a little confused.  If i read your post correctly the black paint in your glue turned your shop towels gray or is that grey ;-). 

So now my questions - what are you painting that is bright blue (the shop towel?) and are you now using the "gray" glue as a primer similar to black gesso (which is glue based)?  I'm sorry for being so dense ( I must have some PM in my brain slowly drying).  I have some black gesso on the shelf to be used (haven't yet) and I understand that it can make your cover paint richer somehow.

The shop towels are blue and just a Iittle black Liqutex acrylic paint made the wood glue and shop towels a light gray and when it dried it was a dark grey. Almost black.

Are these homes made of paper mâché?
