Yes, I know, it screams Mistress Honnorée. It's a pewter charm (found on sale for a $1.25 at Michaels), with glass and Swarovski beads on copper wires and pewter chain.

Seriously, I'm surprised this came together as quickly as it did.

So the previous device failed. Bah.

So, I did a different one. And it cleared.

It's like personalised plates for your car, really. And it can sometimes be a pain in the ass to get them.

I now officially love the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Byzantine Art!

If only you could see how far my jaw has dropped. I am squeeing now. And this is why I chose what I did. It purty.

Sweet Mother of God, I found pre-made egg tempera!

Sure, it's not making my paint by hand, but it's a cheaper alternative, and it gives me a chance to work with material I've never worked with before!

Hee!

Dammit.

This means I -have- to enter Queen's Prize now.

Cathus, I hate you. Not really. But it sounds good.

So, who wants to make my birthday and get me the deluxe set? :P I kid. Sort of.

How did I get talked into submitting something to Queen's Prize?

How?

I blame Cathus. End of story.

I may paint an icon. Not sure, but I'm heading that way. And while I can't afford doing egg tempera, I figure I can get close with acrylic. Maybe.

Again. How did I get talked into submitting something for Queen's Prize?

One of the good things about the Bender graduating is getting art supplies.

I've just been gifted:
Brand new bottle of Higgins ink in black (last I checked, it was $4 a bottle)
Set of three Itoya fine-point markers in .1, .3, and .5 mm
Various pencils of varying hardness, etc.
Brand spankin' new X-Acto knife

Very cool.

And now, I'm going to fall over from exhaustion.

I'm going to stop being art-geeky for the moment. (why didn't I think of that one for the pin-up calendar?)

Oh, before I forget. I shot some great pictures for the pinup calendar...but my camera is developing an odd blind spot in the middle that is fixed by having a person prop it with their finger. Argh. So much for shooting things all by myself.

Blargh.

Sleep.
