Charm Update and Doodley Doo's

Slowly, but surely, I have been working on the charms. I have framed the glass pieces and added a loop for the jump ring. Here's a shot of them (post cooked / pre painted):


The next step will be painting the frames black. I haven't decided if I want to do them simply in black paint or a metallic black paint - I am leaning towards metallic, but think I will test a few in each color ... either way, I'm thinking that I'd like to finish them off with a coat (or two or six) of high gloss varnish ... I am really trying to take my time with these (procrastinate) since painting Sculpy has a tendency to be the bane of my existance ... I'm trying something a little different ... which has me holding my breath a bit ... fingers crossed, please. :)

In other news ... I am rarely found with just a single project going ... it had been a while since I doodled with my Sharpie, so ...


and


and may your days be full of


Wishing you a plethora of all three, ~M~

That is some doodling! Kinda reminds me of those big black/white posters I received as a child in the late 1970s where the pictures came with markers to colour in the white lines! Your pictures are far away ~ safe from the likes of me! LOL!

you have been very busy!
I want to be the owner of one of them (as a pendant) so you have to sell some in etsy and let me know before they fly, please?
