Pendants

Postby Andrew_Z » Sun May 27, 2012 4:26 pm

Last Christmas I made and gave my special friends each a set of two bi-seasonal pendants. Each pendant is double sided, so can be alternately worn as the flowers of Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter. :-)

I was using a new kind of paint called acrylic gouache, which is why they look rather amateurish. It's a bit on the thick side and would have been better with plain gouache. The advantage with the acrylic is it needs no primer coat on wood, and is resistant to varnish smearing. They were much appreciated, but I'm rather dissapointed with the result.

I've recently discovered one can get a watercolour ground that can be used on any kind of surface. I think I'll try that next time and use watercolours.
