Painting the shell.
We had a great afternoon for painting – not too hot, a little cloudy and a little sunny! I used Procion Dyes. The colours were Fuchsia, Shamrock, Lemon Drop and Violet – I just had to sneak a little purple in there somewhere – just on the little fringe edges – they really reminded me of the Lavender tassels.
The pieces are now drying. Hopefully by tomorrow I will be able to start to put them together. The fuchsia may be a little red. I’ll know for sure once the pieces have dried. Otherwise I am very happy with the colours. I followed the KISS principle this time, so unlike me. I kept the colour choices minimal and stuck to my original plan. I think that it may have worked!
