    I always thought priming was optional depending on what look you're wanting. I still think if you're going for a certain look not priming will work but I've struggled with paint dragging, streaking, and looking just…bad since I've started painting and now I have a much better grasp on WHY you prime. Thank you!!

    You are so right! I have always thrown away those wooden pieces because I didn’t know what they were. Now I won’t. Lol ?

    Hello there! I couldn't quite catch what you called the paper you used at the beginning. Am I right that that was sandpaper? I might have misheard you call it a "wet and dry paper"
