"Protect your Hands!" VIDEO

Dear Artist,
Protect your Hands

Here's another BobBlast Studio Tip! 

This week's BobBlast is all about protecting your hands and skin while painting, plus an extra side benefit as well.

I tend to get paint on my hands, especially painting with sponges, paper towels, large brushes and - all too often - my fingers. Great fun to paint 
this way, however, a considerable time is spent scrubbing at the end of 
the day!

Tried rubber and nitrile gloves, but not for long! I needed to FEEL the paint.

Three hand-cream products - easily found on the market - really work 
for me. These products act as a hand barrier cream, applied BEFORE painting. 

Here's the side benefit for "Messy-Hand Painters" - When finished painting, wash your hands and all the paint comes off easily. No more scrubbing. 

Gloves in a Bottle - Like an invisible pair of gloves.

Skin Safer by Marvelous Marianne - Concentrated barrier cream.

Burt's Bees Hand Salve - a farmer's friend!

All three should be tried. All three work great. Better art stores and natural food-type stores carry at least one of these.
