Here is the start of the piece for NAP Invitational in Kutztown PA. Have a mini series here of “how I did it”…

the start – blocking colors

after I blocked the colors, I touched up the paint several times  layering greens and interference colors. Next cut a pleather circle in pink…

deciding on the mixed part


next colored the pink circle, attached the lace with modeling paste, and split the gold ribbon.

attached the circle with brads, glued and put brads on the blue embossed metal, painted the lace with bronze and interference orange and put a gold ribbon braid where the ribbon was cut.

almost finished

the modeling paste when dry was not clear so had to brush with interference gold & bronze paint to cover up the paste. Then I added Golden Glass Bead gel and gave he background another coat of glaze.


fairly accurate color – tad bit more green… all I need to do is spray with sealer and will ship tomorrow.





Then I need to seal the surface.
