Varnish Troubles

So I ended up going out today and buy some polymer varnish to help set the paint on the pebbles in doing. 

First try on one I had just painted, and was rather proud of, and it pulled a heap of the very tiny white dots I had placed and shifted them all around. I think it has to do with how the paint sits on the pebbles themselves so I’m going to use the varnish (glass finish AND medium) as a base coat, paint on top of that so hopefully the paint takes to the varnish then do another layer on top. 

Cross your fingers for me! 

Mandala Stones

So I brought a couple bags of stone for some of my projects, see tic tac toe and the owl stones and on a couple I painted something that I’ve actually been really enjoying because it’s simple yet takes a steady hand. 


These absorbable little mandala stones! I love the patterns and the simplicity. I’ll probably be making a lot more of them and they will also be for sale when I go to the market
