The Moon is a Reflecting Pool

Mostly, I think, finished:



I'm not completely happy, but it was a useful test of form and color. It's a little hard to tell in the photo how many layers of paint and glaze have been applied, some with a pearl and/or golden tint, some with various blues & greens, but the picture below is how it looked when I'd applied only the first layer of paint, back on February 28th:

The top picture is what it looks like today, the bottom picture is what it looked like when I started painting. I started with blue & pearl acrylic paint, then added black & green & a mixed pearlized-blue paint. Then layered a translucent blue glaze, touchups of translucent gold paint, a translucent blue-green glaze, and another blue glaze. (The glazes are liquid polymer medium with oil colours. The base is polymer clay, not regular clay.)

I've updated the post to make it more clear what the pictures are about. :-)

When I enlarge the picture I can really see the bits of other colors coming through. The layers of paint and glaze really have depth and luster. Very pretty!
