i did some more tests on tuesday. i like the ripped effect on metal, it was time to see it with enamel on top. i found that the big open gashes work better when there's an enameled surface. but when it's just plain metal, i like the spiderweb like cracks similar to the one in my thesis piece: you try to take the best of me.
i don't like the butter yellow too much in this context, maybe if it was on the ones i showed in my previous post...i tried to change it up a bit by adding a transparent enamel, but it stayed almost the same. if i could do it again i would use a more subdued yellow.
i only have two more enameling classes left at Jewel Envy...i'm tres sad.
