Nancy and Issabella - thank you. I'm away from the forum for a few days and so much activity has taken place here :yay_yay_purple: .

Still experimenting with ideas and tools; so a couple of variations on a theme of a Japanese Chin -one being a mixed media attempt using glass and lacquer (created using the Airbrush) and the other just black and gold -

Wow! OMG, how beautiful your roses are. The evolution in the rose and your experiments about the different effects are really useful to me. I'll try to get those beautiful looks but if not get it, will you help me? ;)

Richard,

The lacquered Chin - all about serendipity really, I was just trying things out.
Basically as far as I remember, the steps were -

1. coloured glass image was already created
2. next used paths for the target lacquer areas
3. paths to selection
4. choose a foreground colour
5. stroke path with airbrush (2. Hardness 050)
6. shrink selection by 10 pixels
7. choose another foreground colour
8. stroke path with airbrush (2. Hardness 050)
9. repeat steps 6 thru 8 with another colour
10. play with blend modes for each layer
11. chisel filter - I think at 20 pixels internal for a selection covering the 3 above layers - this step really gave it the lacquered look.

Happy to send you the XCF file if you want a closer look.
