Something different

Oooh just look at this, I'm so excited (little things & little minds)
I went to paint a pot the other night and had a bit of an experiment, got the idea from Magnolia magazine!
I took one of my fave Tilda's (never been inked until then).
Just been on their facebook page & she's out of the Kiln, they put it on their pics so I copied it so I could show & tell.

She was quite difficult to paint as the paint is quite thick & all her details got covered up.  You also need to do 3 coats to get a deep colour, and it does get a bit powdery as it dries. Shading her was a nightmare - She took 2 hours to finish. I kept the rest of the plate very plain - so she would really stand out.
I know she's not perfect but I'm chuffed to bits with her.

Thanks for looking
