Just Some More Pendants

 Here are just some in progress pics of some more things I made earlier this week. This time with a step by step procedure!

Here the pendants are with just paint. I like the shape and size of the small squid pendants but they have an annoying texture on them that takes a few layers of paint to cover.

The two spiders on the left are ones that were done in a previous batch, just to compare textures.

Also some bug pendants for a friend of mine. She's going to hook me up with some hissing cockroaches!

This is them after mixing and pouring the epoxy. The bubbles are normal and slowly pop away after an hour. Usually they end up nice and clear.

 But this time they didn't turn out clear. All of them have microscopic bubbles all over the place in the glaze. I don't know how this happened since the normal bubbled all popped and it was only a few hours after being clear that the small bubbles started appearing.

 This close up shows the detail better but still doesn't really show how obvious the bubbles are. The whole thing looks like it is covered with a light speckled layer of dust.

Oh well. Epoxy is usually easy to use but you do have to follow the instructions exactly. Good thing most of these will be going to friends!

Doodles of Bugs

Not much to talk about other than "hey here's some sketches I did in the last few days and yeah my style's been changing again. What the heck is up with that?"

Oh also this little swirly haired girl is one of my friend's characters we were just messing around with. We can't decide which little cheek design to use. I am leaning more towards the triangles myself. We might be doing a few comics together since both of us by ourselves are pretty bad at story telling.
