#1: Ruby red wine for my victorian dinner!
Isn't this beautiful?
There is quite a background in this creation, as I first experimented with Scenic Water, tinted with acrylic paint, but the result was a disaster! It came out quite a mudy-looking liquid...My second attempt was to use plain vitrail (glass) paint, but that wasn't successful either, as the liquid was not as transparent as I wished... Very disappointing... And then I followed Teresa Martinez proposal to use polyester transparent resin, tinted with vitrail paint! So I tried and I got this wonderful result! Thank you so much Teresa for your valuable tip!
Now I am off to more experiments with this resin...and sky will be the limit! ;-))
