Work In Progress
I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to start sharing a little more of the process. This plate is about half done. I'm hoping if it turns out the way I anticipate that it will be a new pattern. I landed a great deal on these large (12", I think) tin ABC plates in bulk, and there is no way I can paint them all myself. So this is the first of a couple different patterns in the works for this surface. This one will feature a Belsnickle style Santa.
I really wanted to show you just how....ummmm....simple (OK- ugly!) a strictly base-coated surface can look (not to mention how much you really needed to see how a neat and tidy workspace should look, right?). It's the details that make a piece click- at this point Santa's eyes are a little scary and the sheep taking a stroll with him is merely a few pencil marks. Hopefully I will get some work done tomorrow and you will be able to see the finished piece...hopefully he'll be a wee bit more handsome tomorrow! Either way, I will post an end-of-day picture.
To be Continued....
