End of second day of carving
After the third evening. It's tedious but fun.
Model Complete 12/30
First casting of Paisley Butterfly. Finish is Inca Gold over Metallic Peridot over Italian Olive plus black. Reproducible because it's an A+G 9 4.
And this one A 13 7 6, which is bronze, Metallic Aquamarine over Metallic Blue Sapphire on a black background. Oh, and a little Metallic Rose on the tiny central flower.
