    It's a mad concoction of paint, paint conditioner and silicone, layer the colours in a cup and flip onto the canvas then tilt to cover, and apply a blowtorch to get the patterns.

    It's really messy and great fun.

    I like your carving, are you designing a house for the unicorn slugs that are being bred on another thread? :)

    Oh I might give that a go. Sounds really interesting. :)

    Thank you. Not sure the unicorn slugs will approve of my shell but it is something to consider. Do you think there is a business opportunity there :D

    I love the budgie! It reminds me so much of my wee budgie girl, Marge, who sadly went to the bridge last year.

    I love the look you get from acrylic pouring and it was a lot of fun, but I’m such a tight arse and felt like I was wasting soooo much paint :oops:

    Aw gorgeous girl, my Grandma has always had budgies from when she was 18 (85 now) and lost her two boys Danny and JoJo this year, she's decided those were her last ones but she misses them terribly. They really are great company and are such comical little animals. I'm sorry for your loss x

    I'm a bit the same to be honest, I have to force myself to use enough paint to actually cover the canvas as it makes me cringe when it runs off. If you are quite careful you don't waste too much, some of the people I've seen on Youtube waste a ridiculous amount. I makes skins on plastic too as I also make jewellery so can use the run off too.

Have lots more piccis if anyone interested.

    I'm not sure if it fits in here because I do this professionally, and get a company to make the moulds and do the casting, but I sculpt my own stuff and have it made into pewter jewellery. I also just started making trinket boxes. I sculpt all the originals by hand in Milliput, then send them off to be cast (they do a much better job in their workshop than I can do at home!). Then I list and sell them on Ebay, and at events like Whitby Goth Weekend. It's now my living. :)

    I also paint, but still trying to find a market for my artwork.

    Very nice PickleRoo. What type of threads have you used? Is it wool?

    Paper marbling is also showing some promise, but by heck it's unpredictable!
