My husband and friends and I had been doing these paint nights for a few months, but this was the first time we had used oil paints. The others we did were with acrylic because we just didn’t know any difference. We do now! Haha! We loved how the oils blended. Everything just worked so much better with oils. Lol. The hardest part for me was doing the white parts of the trees. We didn’t know how to get it to not just become pink, but we’re starting to understand the different paint textures.
