Ornamentation!

It’s been a while since I posted last – between school and a lot of other things, I’ve been lax. I apologize! I have new things to show you now!

On the advice of my friend Cassie, I started painting ornaments with the whimsical things I love… and I’m having a blast! I only have photos of 2 so far, but I’m loving the process. With the right primer, I’m happily painting away on glass. My first piece, the luck dragon, pretty much sealed the deal for me. Even without teeny tiny brushes (which you bet your booty I will be investing in), I found the level of detail involved enjoyable. It’s such a major contrast to doing the mural that it’s pretty cool.

And come on, who wouldn’t want a Christmas tree with a dragon? Or a troll? Or a faerie paladin? (Although, to be perfectly honest, I didn’t think about them being Christmas ornaments until others brought it to my attention) So I’m going to be hitting up thrift and dollar stores for more ornaments, and see what comes of that. If I can get some really weird shaped ones, that would be a ton of fun.

Once again, sorry for the long silence – there will be much more posting now, with all the projects I’ve been working on. I’ll also be posting more of the geeky stuff I’ve been up to, just so you can delight in things like boffer swords, Crypticon and Free RPG Day swag! Life is good. ^_^
