Hands up

HI there folks
Yes, I know, there's not too much going on here at the moment. I've had so much happening that finding the time to actually blog about some of what I've been doing. I also want to keep some surprises for the visitors to the extravaganza this weekend!
But here is something; my first attempt at a fantasy weapon!
I have wanted to do something like this for ages but it was only last week that I actually found the right style "weapon" and decided to give it a go. I'm pretty pleased with the end result. Still some touch ups to do but as a learning experience it was good.


 I used metal foil tape to do the back section. Alcohol inks add colour and black paint.

 Not bad for a 99p toy really..........
Have fun, now I'd better see if my other stuff is dry so catch you later!
If you are in the area of The Craft Barn over the coming weekend; I hope you'll pop in and say hi, I'll be having a good time all weekend with Dylusions, Distress stains and Distress markers. All the details of this amazing event can be fond HERE.

Oh that's so Kewl Neil!!!!! Wonder if hubby would mind me taking over a few of his weapons. LOL. Not.
Such an inspiring piece makes me want the hit the dollar store in search of things to alter!
