These are a lot of fun to make, and sell rather well in the Artisan Store that carries my beading.
This time around, there was way more experimentation than I like.
Seems that the Powers That Be have reformulated the paint I use on these, and it would no longer stick. Grrr! Make that GRRRR!
Many, many little lizzies (and a few froggies) had to be painted again and again and again. I finally got color on them that wouldn’t come off when touched, but it took a lot of trial and error. This turned into one of those short weekend afternoon projects with an appetite all it’s own.
They’re finished now, all dressed up in their beady finery. Whew!
