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.
