Project

Halloween Contest: Venetian Raven masks

What are you most proud of? I really love my Koi. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can paint any design you like! The spray ultra-glitter was very effective - but notice that the handpainting is not on top of that. I painted the background with the metallic acrylic, painted the koi, taped off that area and sprayed the glitter paint. Originally I did all the scales on the koi in gold but it didn't show up well, so I re-painted in black.

Q&A with Pam Sews

Nana Jo 54 asked:
You are so talented. I am not so good with paint. I love the masks.
Pam Sews answered:
this is so strange, I left you a comment but they all disappeared! You are so artistic with fabric, paint is just another way to play. It is also very handy for touching up some little fabric bit you need to disguise or change! Love fabric paints :-)
