Glitter paste background

See, I told you I wasn’t done with this set yet. Still playing with the cactus set by Concord and 9th. This time I used some lovely glitter paste for the background and used colored pencils for the big cactus. For some reason, these cacti are so much fun to color. Not many details and a […]

Sugar skulls with flashing eyes

I love experimenting and trying to come up with new ways of doing things. These sugar skulls was an idea that I got and needed to try to make. The idea is that the skulls are attached on sliders and the sliders are also the switch. So you can move the heads up and down […]
