(below copied from my deviantart commentary - Im lazy, sue me! lol)
water-based paints, many layers lol. I wanted to match the original as closely as possible. Currently sealing, then antiquing. :)
Ardanae is amazing!! please check her out!
I do have permission to reproduce her design. :)
I did change a few things, I moved the hair up a bit just for slight covering of ahem. Her breast lol. Also moved the butterflies down for space, and I think a few hair strands, to help with carving. :)
This is on a passport holder; the kit was on uber sale last time I went to the leather shop. ^_^. Figured it couldn't hurt to make something pretty!!
I would have carved both sides, but the back half isn't great quality. ^^.;
So, there ya go. Carving minus a few touch-ups done! :)
Not the greatest picture but hey not bad. :)
