About this design:

Alcohol (inks, I mean!) is very seductive. All of a sudden you begin to look at things in your drawer and think....I could PAINT that!

And that's just what I did.

But it does feel a little bit like cheating to take credit for it. :-)


Recycled metal cuff, alcohol inks.

    LOVE IT!!! The colors are gorgeous. Yes it looks like enamel. Also like stone with the cool pattern of markings.
    btw: When are you going to send us the pic of the poor CHAIR that held still long enough for you to paint it!?!?!? LOL
