I am pretty excited. I have a commission for a drawing. A wonderful lady has a doll that her mom got when she was 8 yrs old. Her mom is celebrating her 100th birthday and for a gift she wants me to make a drawing of the doll. There is lots of lace on the dress so this will test my skills.
Last year I needed some roses and leaves, so off to the $ store. When I brought them home I new there needed to be a change. I just didn't want fake $ store roses on the art piece. After looking around my art room I came upon it, ahhhh plaster of paris. I made a batch and dipped the roses into it. Yes it was mess but I like messy art. I did take a brush to remove any extra. They took a long time to thoroughly dry and they chip easily. So a spray of lacquer is a good idea. Before the lacquer paint any color you like. Of course mine are black. LOL
