The pieces are complete! Well, painted and sealed and looking nice and shiny. I hope to get these almost-pendants ready to go and listed soon. A few of these guys were more challenging than others (yeah, I’m talking to you, Gemini!) but then I remind myself that I managed to finish an entire 79 tarot card deck. And in comparison, most things seem much easier now!
I really am enjoying painting on stones. I love that each piece is different: they have their own unique shape, feel, weight, and colours. Some have small dimples and others are much more roughly textured. I have many more stones and ideas just waiting to be put on them.
I also recently took the plunge and joined Instagram. I’m hoping to take and share more photos as I go along. If you’re on Instagram, feel free to share your page; I’d love to follow you!
I had a custom miniature painting above, which I really enjoyed, especially using real sand as the beach. I think I’ll need to work with real sand more! It’s fun working with different mediums in a different way.
Below are a few actual pendant ideas. They’re not available yet, but hopefully will be soon. I’ve been working on painting more pendants lately; I think I’ve needed a little bit of the break from all the tarot card painting. Pendants are compact and great ways to experiment. I’ve always worked with circles but these rectangles are a blast.
I think this is also my 200th blog post. Woo. I’m amazed I’ve lasted this long!
