Game of Thrones present

Ages ago (over one year ago) I asked my brother on his bday “What would you like as a present? Money, or one of my pots, but with a GoT theme?” “POT!!” He immediately answered. I was happy with the answer, but then hehe, I never got around to it, until now.

I have a problem with this pot. I like what I have done so far, but it feels kind of naked. The pot is pretty big, so I’d like to have more area painted than this. Both my boyfriend and sister told me to leave it as it is, but I still have my doubts.

I’ll be giving it as a Xmas presie, and I guess that if I fill it up with cookies or chocolates, it will look better hehe 🙂

Any opinions will be greatly appreciated 🙂

Finito!

Finally done with the latest pot. It was probably the most intricate one I have done so far, and the most difficult one, but I had fun painting it 🙂  Mom’s bday is coming up so I might give it to her unless I make something nicer. I have to make a Stark sigil one for my brother, who also has a passion for all things Game of Thrones… Probably not the next one, but certainly coming soon 🙂

Here it is!

Ok, I am working on this one now. Spent about two hours outlining the whole thing. By the end of the night my wrist was calling me names! It looks nice as it is, even without coloring in, but I’ll fill it in anyways. I kept the design on paper and can do it again.

Can’t wait to get my hands busy painting it, but saddly, work comes first ;). This is the first design I have made using inspiration from works I saw on the net. A few changes here and there, but I really love it. Hope it looks nice in the end.

Here’s how it looks after the outlining:

Working on a new project!

Ok so now it is time to try light bulbs! The acrylic paint I bought works really well on glass, which is weird because a lot of people on the Internet say it doesn’t work well. I am making a Christmas ornament. So far so good, I haven’t had time to do much and I only started last night.

I can’t wait until I get back home to do some more painting. It takes quite a bit of time since I am making such tiny drawings on it, but it has a therapeutic effect on me lol 🙂

Here’s what I have done so far:

New things I painted!

Last post I said I was going to try to paint during my holidays, but I didn’t. I didn’t paint them during my holidays because  (‘yay’ ) my boyfriend’s boss told him she needed him the day before we were meant to head out to our road trip. So instead I painted my little pots and bottle during the weekend.

We were actually quite lucky that our hols got canceled, or rather, postponed, because the weather sucked that week, and we went the week after, and the weather was AWESOME!!!!!

I know I still haven’t posted all about my first hols, but I guess I’ll just add stuff as I feel like it. heck, it’s my blog and I’ll blog how I want to.

Here are some rather sucky quality photos of my latest creations. They look much nicer in person, but saddly my house isn’t as well lit as my mom’s hehe. I’ll replace the photo with better ones if I ever get around to it. I used the usual paints and also tried some new acrylic paints for fun, and I like them!

That’s right, I’m slacking.

Done with work today, too tired to compute, so I am slacking and making drawings for my future glass paintings. My second half of holidays are about to start and I might get one done, hopefully more, as long as I manage to stay still for a few days… ok, so maybe just the one :p

Here’s an idea:

Glass painting

Today I passed by my mother’s house to leave her some corn silk tea for an issue she has, kidney stones. I know she’d never bother making it herself, so I left her shitloads in her fridge lol 🙂

I was waiting for the water to boil when I noticed she had my Xmas gift to her from two years ago in her living room. I painted it myself, and filled it with yummy chocolates. Cheapest gift ever, but I think it was pretty cool. I took some photos of it to put here. Here it is!

Been thinking about making more, on weekends, and then when I had loads, I could either give them to friends or sell them. I made more, I made one for my dad, one for a brother and one for my sister. If I ever come across them again I’ll photograph them and put them here 🙂
