Are there any painting techniques you would recommend? When painting anything, the thickness and evenness of the paint (and don’t forget bubbling!) is always a concern. Painting technique varies depending on the look you are going for. For a modern look you can dip your brush in water every so often (if using a water-based paint) to level out brush strokes, lightly sand once dry with a high grit (400) then finish your piece with a buffed wax for high shine.
Chip and Joanna Gaines fans (hi, that's us) have a lot to look forward to: Season five of Fixer Upper is coming (likely to premiere this fall), and the couple is set to open a breakfast joint sometime this summer. While we not so patiently await, we're focusing on bringing design duo's expertise in our own homes. During the KILZ Master Class in Waco, Texas, we asked Chip and Jo for their sage advice on the best, and easiest, ways to make your home feel a bit more personal. 1.
Her enthusiasm for the project was mirrored in every other artist and attendee, including panelist and artist Elise Peterson , whose art is displayed across the street from Tictail’s Lower East Side storefront. As an educator who works in underserved communities, it’s important to Peterson to show students that art actually is accessible, so the idea of public art made her want to get involved.The image she created was inspired by her "own iterations of self."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
