For my nephew’s birthday this year I purchased some phosphorescent paints and painted him a picture of Grogou. I painted the picture in normal paint first then added the layer of phosphorescent paint because “This is the way” to get good color and also make it shine under the black light. The first photo is regular light the second is under the black light.
This dragon was requested by the collector in Indiana. She wanted a dragon with a pink background. Each scale was painted by hand. This dragon took 3 weeks to finish the scales. It is painted on a 14 diamond saw blade.
This dragon was painted on a 14 inch diamond saw blade. The dragon is flying over islands in the sea. It has the Chinese symbol for Joy and the translation written next tot he dragon. It was donated to a charity for their annual fundraiser.
This dragon was painted on a 26 inch wood saw. It depicts a flying dragon under the New Years fireworks and has in gold lettering the Chinese characters saying Gung Chow Fa Choy the traditional New Year’s greeting. It was sold to a collector in Indiana.
Some fowl work. The saw was done for the local Jr. Fair as a donation for their silent auction, I added a tin chicken feed sign to it. The bucket was a $1 item at Target that I painted for my niece to use as a small planter.
My nephew is a big Star Wars fan so for his birthday I did a saw with the the Millennium Falcon heading towards the Death Star chased by a TIE fighter. An X-wing was attacking the Death Star while an Imperial cruise is in the background. He loved it.
I bought some Glow paints to play around under black lights. I thought the Cheshire cat would make a perfect UV painting, as an added bonus he also glows in the dark. The first photo is under normal light, the second UV light and the third in the dark.
Entered this in the local fair, a horse grazing by the fence of the farm. Red barn and house in the background. It didn’t win but I liked it.
My other niece is a little bit wild and extreme so I made her a jar with Stitch on it.
While decorating jars, I found butterflies were easier to decorate and had more options for personalization. So I did a couple, including one for my niece.
