Before and after reinking...what do you think


This is the mermaid AFTER reinking...still have to do her shell and her mermaid doll...and do a little thread painting...the for the other side...thats a we shall see for sure...make a collage and THEN? paint it?! OH the mermaid was painted with a variety of paints...mostly lumiere, but some setacolor...cobalt, a lovely lime, and chocolate shimmer and some white jacquard and her skin was done with prochems champagne and a pink...but I added some jaquard white to it to lighten it up a little more...than reinked it with a prismacolor pen...hmmm forgot the highlights on her face...where is my toothpick?! OH and glitter has tinny stars in it...whereever the paint was wet enough to make it stick...funn stuff starry glitter Posted by Picasa
