2023Re: Alan, what did you do with the eggs?
- Jun 10, 2004I certainly like the shades, but know you can create a better base,
something in the arts and crafts style. Have you considered a base
done in black and highlighted with bronze powders, a base with bark
like texture? That's easily done by scraping crumpled tin foil along
its length. Brush down with alcohol to make it appear smoother, and
then apply the leaves and powder.
