fairytale mural

I love this one!

For a little girl's room. Royal banner with her initial:


I used "interference" paint so when you get the right angle of light on it, it glows:


This is over the closet doors:


Here's the royal coach:


And with the glow:


more to come....

Ruth,

This is SO adorable! You are SO multi-talented. The little girl will LOVE it!

BTW, did you make the dragon's breath flame on purpose or was that just the camera flash? Cool!

Okay, my five year old wants to know if you will sleep over (and bring your paints).

Lovely, lovely work. Very soft .

This is just wonderful. It would be fun to be able to see it in panaramic view. It would be a shame in ever painting over it.
Lucly little girl. Was this for someone you know?

oops, didn't see the part about the interference paint (I'm an artist - I don't read! )

Your use of interference paint really made this mural special, it looks like gold and silver leaf....very royal!
