Which to do...

Now that the wedding picture is done I am catching up on other projects.  I put epoxy finish on my picture from Carol Nelson's workshop as well as on my first effort "Copper Mountain" at using her techniques.  Since I had a little left over I poured it on a miniature just to see what it would look like.

With that drying for 48 hours, I went back to the large poppy that has so many coats of glaze.  I am having trouble with the center.  I may leave it alone for awhile.  I have too many hours into it to quit.

Tyvek still looks like fun to me so I have started two small pictures, one with pyrrole red and quinacridone magenta, and the other with yellow green and ultramarine blue.  I have a black background peeking through the holes in the reddish one and blue foil as a base for the green.  Now to look through my beads for possible embellishment.  Carol said after her workshops many people have Tyvek parties to play with this stuff.  I can understand that.  Every time you lift the iron something new appears.
