Dunno if anyone’s interested in these, but this was my latest assignment for CGMA’s Art of Color and Light class- this past week focused on how light interacts with different materials.
It’d be cool to try some different skin tones, I just used my own pasty hand for reference. Maybe even an alien species with non-red blood, so the occlusion shadow glows a different color where light passes through? Would it be purple for Namekians and green for Vulcans? (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ possibilities
Also, the iridescent pearl wasn’t a requirement, but I enjoy Sailor Moon and suffering. If anyone’s got pointers on iridescence, I am all ears over here, because I clawed my way through that one screaming
Blue and gold for a Khaleesi, perhaps, like her Qartheen armored dress bodices and belts. Or red, orange and gold puff paint with the outline of the Martell Sun & Spear Sigil.
Even if you’re not honoring the Khaleesi, these lanterns might be great additions to Hearth Shrines, Kitchen Shrines, or even painted with Sigils, imbued with energies, and hung around the house for various purposes.
old glass jars (spaghetti jars, jam jars or any plain glass jar will work)
gold dimensional puff paint
glass paint (Delta or Pebeo Vitrea glass paint are great options)
wire (optional, for hanging lanterns)
Remove labels and any glue residue from the glass jars and allow them to dry completely.
Apply the gold dimensional paint in various patterns. You can use the applicator tip to create small stud-like dots, draw various decorative patterns or push around the paint to create solid areas of gold. Let dry
Pour a small amount of glass paint inside the jar and use your paintbrush to drag the paint up the sides of the jar, coating all of the jar’s interior. Let dry.
Your lanterns are now ready to enjoy indoors or out! Simply fill them with candles or add loops of fine-gauge wire to the tops for easy hanging.
We were bored today so my sister looked up hairstyles on youtube and she did my hair while I played Ico lol. Neat right? I haven’t dyed my hair for 3 months :( (Click the pictures to see the names of the braids)
