29 Faces – Face 9 and Finished Pendants

 Face 9

Who’s worried?  All of my faces lately.  So, in an effort to avoid a creased brow, a stressed girl, before I even began, I scribbled “Try Not to Look Worried.”  And, I think it worked.  She looks a little blank, but she doesn’t look worried.

I semi-caught up my Lovely Dream lessons today – Suzi’s all about Pan Pastels right now – but I don’t have any.  So, I stopped with the graphite.  Maybe I’ll color her in when I buy some.  

And I’m on the last lap of my Mother’s Day marathon – my pendants are done.  And, I’m pretty pleased with them.  Oh, one has an air bubble, one has a bit of a ding in the resin, but for the most part, it was a good first effort.   I did totally screw up one of my cool Eiffel Tower ones, when I painted the domino, but oh well, I can always make it again.  And now, as always, I have all kinds of ideas for the next time.  One of them is curing as we speak – when I thought about what I should wrap the pendant in – I thought – ah ha! a tin – and why not add a little resin while I’m at it?  I’m not sure it was a good idea though – I think I may have gotten some resin in the hinge – oopsy.  Whatever.  It’s the thought.

But now for the pendants.  They didn’t photograph so well – they look a lot better in person.  Especially the Eiffel Tower – in the photo, it looks like the brown paint is brown guck, but in person, it looks they way I wanted it to, a bit aged, a big grunge. 

Anyway, I have strategies in my head for being neater with the resin next time, although, like the dolls – what the heck am I going to do with all of these pendants?

At least the dolls I can hang on the wall.

    I like the face you drew…and the lace ruffle is beautiful. As are the pendants you made. You've been so busy!

    Hello: I love your faces. They are so personal. Also those pendants are gorgeous. I have been thinking of doing some. I use EnviroTech resin and I seem to get a lot of air bubbles. You do create art.
