Special project finished to sent to a friend in NC. Tried some new techniques on the brass leaves. I heated them to red hot then allowed them to cool washed them off and sprayed a magenta fast dry enamel for base coat. Next I airbrushed 3 colors of special airbrush paint, still learning how to use the airbrush. Finely I applied several washes of acrylic paint in several colors. As a final over spray of a textured rust paint let dry over night then a matte spray to protect it all. I like how it turned out.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.
