This little 4×4 inch artwork began as a test piece for the large Fire Glow Cross. The two ended up having very different color schemes, but this smaller one allowed me to test the set of the costume jewels into the molding paste.
Here’s a pic of all 4 pieces on my art table…
Left side: this piece with its blue stones and the large Fire Glow Cross with its red stones, and
Right side: the little 4 Cross Crackle piece and its large friend Crackle Cross on Gold.
Here’s a before (unpainted) and after pic of Handheld Blues:
The middle step involved just paint, no crosses:
This fun little piece is for sale on Etsy!
