More ornaments coming soon!

Posted by Kim Haskins on

After such a difficult time dealing with recent copyright infringement issues, making heart-shaped ornaments ahead of this year's Christmas season has been an enjoyable and uplifting task. This year I'm applying a thick, glossy coat of resin to each one to add extra shine and protection when hung on display. The downside is that it takes at least 24 hours to dry, so it's time-consuming but absolutely worth it. Gold leaf and glitter makes for an especially striking effect under resin! The first lot of ornaments sold out within 48 hours, but I've been making more in the meantime. I'll give...

Copper and gold leaf on 'By Your Side'

Posted by Kim Haskins on

'By Your Side' features a blue tabby with gittering gold leaf eyes next to a fluffy gold kitten. It has a luxurious background of resin-coated copper leaf.  Copper leaf turns out to be a bit trickier to work with than gold leaf - it seems harder to transfer from the wax paper onto the canvas. But the effect is stunning, and I particularly like the contrast against blue colours, like in this painting. I have coated this with clear resin too for an extra tactile and glossy effect.Painted on 6x4" canvas in 2016; signed, varnished and unframed. Can be hung framed or unframed, or stood...
