Not Even a Day....
Unlike the effect that the golf tape gives on thin plastic, on this it is really obvious.
I tried just on one side, but when I did that, the opposite side, the one without the lead, was shiny and sticky looking...Glue on the lead.
I am still thinking.
I knew that I was going to add more color with Prismacolors, so I wasn't too fancy about the paint.
I went over the whole thing here and there with a bronze pencil.
Here it is with the addition of some strips of metallic copper scrapbook card stock. I cut it in 1/2" strips and folded it down the middle. Glued it on and put a six petal bead cap on top. I will probably add some kind of finial on the top, but the glue on the cap isn't dry yet.
Not too bad for shingles that are essentially poster board. The pencils definitely help.
You may be wondering where Tessie is hiding...
It took me a while to find her.
That was yesterday... I finally found her this morning. She retreated to Zar's Pit.
When I looked in, she was lounging on the couch, with a whole plate of cookies on her lap and a drink on the coffee table..
Zar sidled over to me and whispered..."Get her out of here! I can't get anything done with her munching and gurgling in my ear."
He does like his privacy, now that he has a place to be alone with his books.
I guess that I should finish the tower room in a hurry. If I don't, Tessie is probably going to make the stay permanent and that would put me on Zar's enemies list...I would rather be on her list...A least she doesn't have an atomic squirt gun, filled with who knows what.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
