I painted a batch of Sugar Plum Poads!
This was fun, since there seems to be no consensus on what the heck a “sugar plum” IS, exactly, I was free to interpret it my own way.
These poads are airbrushed with layer upon layer of metallic paint. I used contrasting colors to subdue and darken the bright underlying hues, resulting in a color that has as much complexity as the “Autumn Leaf” color.
They have deep plum colored heads that blend into red, copper and finally into a slightly unripe looking green bum. Their shoulders are dappled with interference blue markings to give them a frosty look, and they have been dusted with magic invisible paint to make them glitter under a point source light.
Jane, our mold maker, has ended up with the job of mixing the special plum colored glass paint for their eyes. These two poads each have a different, new eye color: the one on the right has the plum color, the one on the left has a dark purple, almost navy blue eyes. I like them both.
Which do you like?

We will have these in the store soon as we get eyes and Poad cards finished, hopefully this week!
