Painting Miniatures

Have been experimenting in painting 'miniatures' this afternoon in line with about.coms monthly painting projects - surprisingly the shell was just lovely as a surface to work on - I thought it migt behave a little like bone which I found the paint slid off of

- but the shell gripped the paint rather well.

I think these are gorgeous! I was also surprised the paint worked well on the shell, and didn't simply slide off. I guess there's enough for the acrylic to grip onto.
