Yesterday, we were working on new ideas for rings. These are a couple of tests.
Test no. 1
We were not happy with the result. The glitter is too translucent and did not look good.
Test no. 2
I took off the glitter from test no. 1 on the sample skull. I decided to combine apple red acrylic paint with the red glitter. I don't have a picture of the result but it was favorable. A step closer to what we are looking for
I didn't want to use one of the sample skulls that we have lying around. I made a whole new batch of skulls that are clean, and ready to be worked on. I busted out the sand paper to smooth out the edges. Each skull is distinctly different from the next.
This is the result. I decided to stick to one single all around color. Each skull is hand painted with multiple layers to achieve a rich color composition. I made sure that I didn't add too much paint to the teeth so that they stand out and have more depth than the rest of skull. I have let them dry overnight now today I am adding the glitter, and the single gold colored tooth. We are working on ideas for the back of them, maybe a contrasting color to add pop and interest - enforcing our attention to ever part of this piece.
