New sets, before antiquing (sp?)


We're off to the movies...wanted to post this set first. I just finished rubbing acrylic on the first bunch and was tempted to add some kind of gold edges. They look better left alone...

kay, so what I did was put together a slice of kato gold (about 1/2" off of a 3oz. block) and then added a small bit of premo ultra blue(about 1/4 of a section...how much is that? ...about 1/8 oz?). So that didn't do much. Started adding premo green, prolly ended up putting in about 1/4 oz. Oh, and also added a lil bit of trans to the mix. Came out with a more vivid green, but I think it's a little bit prettier than the other green. I guess you could tone it down with more blue.

hth, gf...

Barb, those are so lovely I can't stand it!!!! Beautiful work, as always.

I'm inspired to go work now... but I'm probably sleepy enough I'll nap instead. With a two year old that's usually my best option, sadly. ;-)
