More Progress

If only paint dried instantly...! I could have gotten so much more done on her today if I hadn't had to wait for paint to dry. As it is, she is now ready for embellishment.

After 2 coats of gold paint she looked like this.

Then I added a layer of texturizing medium. Cool stuff! I will have to play with that some more.

Another layer of gold paint to blend it all together...

...followed by a wash of watered down black paint. I am REALLY likeing how she looks right now. The next step in the class calls for working her over with some sand paper, but I'm not sure I want to do that. I'll just let the idea percolate a bit. The teacher's sample looked great after the sanding, but I don't want to ruin what I have started!.

Uhuh... I confess. I'm a chicken.

I chickened out on that step too! I tried one little spot and it took the paint off all the way down to the polymer. It looked like a bad acne scar, LOL. It was hard to fix too. Your girl looks wonderful. This class is fun, isn't it!
