Della Wetterman - Packets
Della's style of painting is painted in colors that are brighter than they will look when she uses her mudding technique and then varnishes them. They become mellow and take on a glow with the wax that is added to her pieces. She had the good fortune to paint with the late Joyce Howard for a number of years and adapted the techniques she learned from Joyce to fit her style.
The importance of the proper brush to do the "mudding" or antiquing method cannot be understated. Brushes manufactured for Della work well with her technique. Her Mop brushes are unlike any others on the market.
