I was inspired to create a Lucius pendant--

Post by Hilary the Touched » Sun Jul 17, 2011 9:17 pm

This doesn't warrant a post, but I was that chuffed with myself--I made a Lucius pendant. The portrait part was drawn in Rapidograph and enhanced with coloured pencil and acrylic paint; it's a shrinky-dink framed in glass and metal, hinged at the side, and the portrait's surrounded by (faux) snakeskin.

It's very small--the picture is about the size of a nickel. Here's another photo with A Common Household Object for scale (sorry, didn't have a nickel handy):

It's beautiful! Does it come with a magnifying glass for us visually impaired?

:mrgreen: , Marie!
Helen, no, I wished I'd had one while painting it--(I lent my Bausch & Lomb magnifier to BonnieKate when she had her accident a couple of years ago, and couldn't wear her glasses)--it was mighty small, even before shrinkage!
Thanks, SlytherinMama! (I could be induced to part with this one . . . :cool: )
