You are nailing it!
I think the black is the stand-out in terms of unique.

Thanks. Very Happy

Here's what I'm working on now.



Yesterday we had a bunch of rain and it was cold to boot. But you know me; damn the torpedoes. That's when we had Adventures in Blushing. Mad

Today it was dry, so I misted more clear on the blushed areas and now it's all good.

But then I ran out of clear while doing the tinted clear coats on the Aged Pink in the foreground. When my new gallon of clear comes tomorrow or Tuesday it will get some more aging.

In the mean time I have an experiment in mind ... Twisted Evil

Finished Aged Pink proto #2 this morning. It's better than the last one, but not as good as the next one. Laughing



Two more APs in the queue, then a different take on the black. Working on a couple of experiments too. Cool

I like this one! The aged-faded pink is my favorite so far. Cool

Assembling this today--as soon as I decide which other one is sacrificing its hardware. Laughing

So this buddy of mine wanted a black-back paisley. It took literally all day to get it like this.



In the future, "black-back" will carry a substantial upcharge. Laughing

Here's an experiment in the works: black over gold bling. This is bare, no top coats yet. It will look deeper with some clear on.

I like where this one is going. Put a smokey burst around the edge and I think you will have another winner!
