    The opal eyes are SO cool, awesome idea, he’s so cool!

    Thank you! I bought more opal glass cabochons to use as eyes on different pieces. The Rock Dragon here needed its sockets gouged out a bit then backfilled to fit the pointed rhinestones, and I want to avoid that if possible because it wastes a bunch of time.
    At present I should have the proper-sized cabs to use on Keepers and should be getting some for the Rock Dragon shortly. Just gotta wait for the Keeper to be restocked so I can test out the new cabs!

    I appreciate the determination to get those cabs in the eye sockets! But it’s worth the effort imo, opals are just so pretty.

    I can’t wait to see the opals on a keeper!

    In my never-ending quest to try new art supplies and techniques on PYOs I usually end up with winners with the occasional dud. This time around I think it’s a mission failed successfully.

    I tried some color-changing inks on this fella. It’s interesting but not something worth doing again on other pieces.
    The dragon’ll have to be spray-varnished when the weather’s better (hopefully soon). Hopefully I have some eyes that match one of its colors.

    He is pretty (and stripes are always good 🙂 ).

    So beautiful! It almost reminds me of a Tigrex from Monster Hunter (though they’re orange with blue stripes)

    Thank you both. It gave me some inspiration for a similar scheme using acrylics. I might try it out on a hipp first since I think it’ll look really nice.

    I tried out some pour paints on a different figure and they came out so well that I decided to use them on this kittygriff too. The gloss varnish really makes the colors pop. There’s also holographic glitter in the varnish as can be seen in the photos.
