New Paints

I have been experimenting with some new metallic paints and patinas that I received this week. I don't mean to gross anyone out but since I was painting skulls I just decided to try the process on one of them. It was really amazing at how well they work and I love the effect that is obtained. This particular "trial" was done with a dark undercoat of Raw Umber from DecoArt, Gold Metallic with a Green Patina.... Guess I will turn this skull into a Halloween piece. It is much to "disturbing" to be used for my other pieces. Email me what you think.

  1. Love the colour - but he is a bit scarey isn't he? So I know what you mean - great for Halloween.

  2. Yes he is a bit scary, but I really like the patina look that you achieved with the paints.

    Had look through your other items and you sure do beautiful work.
