Messy Missy

 Yep thats me, a proper messy missy today... well ya know how it is, you just have to get messy now and again and by gum i did for this piece.
The butterfly is a metal one which i altered with metallic pearl paint, copper pen and mica and then set. I threaded little pearly beads on some wire and attached to the butterly.
The background was covered in pva glue then i threw everything at it including, metallic pearly paints in pear and copper, i added alcohol inks (various ) also used some sprays and some mica pigments that are a pinky white and even a little yellow food colouring .... How messy is that !!!! but worth it as the colours are fab in the different lights they shimmer and shine beautifully. (Please click to enlarge for details )
