Another experiment that went wrong but the wife liked it so I completed it. As you can see the paint shrank back leaving what appears to be cracks. Somehow the more I look at it the more I like it. It is 10 1/2” X 2” and I believe it is lime

Looks good man. The “mistakes” make it one of a kind and this time it played out for the good. Plus if you wife likes it that’s a really good thing.

I find those luminescent paint projects very attractive. Wish I had the means to try one. To me what you think are cracks look like lighting in the sky.
