Glass Bead Gel

Restroom surface choices

Poor Picture of Queen Anne's Lace Metallic Plaster
It's been a busy week for me with this commercial project, several bids to do and the normal head of household duties. I have worked on some art every day but I'm finding the only time to blog is late and I'm worn out by then. I experimented with a new texture last night and I really don't like it. I'm going to have to overglaze it with a metallic.The design that goes over the texture is going to incorporate glass bead gel. The inspiration is from Melanie Royal's blog (owner of Modello Design, one of the faux schools I've been to):

Wow, it's interesting to hear about where art meets the real world.

I agree with lapoynte! It is fun to see how you are applying your art to your work-life expression. The bathroom samples are yummy. That would be a fun upgrade in my own bathroom. hmmm!
