Material: Paint Sticks

I spray HVLP at a fine art framing shop in the Boston area - stirring finishes is a constant part of the job. I use the cutoffs we make in the woodshop and use them as stir sticks - beautiful hardwood stir sticks, thinly milled, coated with every lacquer and stain we use throughout the work week. The literal color residue of my daily life is recorded on these sticks, and on my lacquer splattered skinnies. photo credit: J. Agger
