These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Saturday's Egg, part six: Painted, gilded, touched up, antiqued, finished, touched up, waxed, DONE.

(viewed 1771 times)
Bookmark and Share
The final finish is an crackled tortie. The gold is real 22k, gilt. Hand
antiqued (as if there were another option in this case..) 3 coats of
finish, an INSANE number of touchups at every stage, and waxed.

This egg will wind up at auction, with proceeds to go towards the vet bill
of Saturday, wombat527 and onceupon's cat.

Getting it to look really old and handmade was a bitch.

Wow. I hope that goes for a ton of money. It certainly should, given all the work and how amazing it looks.

Im finding I dont care for the photos of it. I think they're expanding the scale too much. In person it's much nicer looking and the scale is much more manageable (it's a chicken egg.)

But thanks, everyone. :)

I should finish with that gold egg today also, and then go back to work on creating that black one again.
