    Custom Classic squonker.....A Bit of Bling

    In the alcohol inks thread I showed some pics of me practice inking some Coppervape squonkers. The practice was so that I could get the process down for inking Doggies new custom classic squonker. I was quite nervous about it because I have no problems trashing my own mods but it's different when it's someone elses. It arrived late last week and after a bit of procrastination started the layering yesterday.

    It's exciting for doggie, so you might have seen the pics elsewhere.

    The plan is to layer blues, reds and browns to give some nice flashes of colour through the layers.
    I am using piņata inks which are much thicker and each set of colour will be sealed with Kamar varnish to stop bleeding through the layers. As each layer gets built up it will take longer to dry so the process might be a bit slower than I would normally like but I would rather be slow than muck it up.

    The base and edges are masked and rimmed with PVA glue (absorbs excess ink and keeps cleanup to the minimum)

    The first layers of blue (Baja blue and sapphire blue)



    The second layer of reds (mountain rose and Sangria Red)


    Both these have been sealed with Kamar varnish (water based varnish)

    I will add the Browns tomorrow afternoon.. Weather permitting

    With more layers, it will change in different light more. And still be exciting in 5 years.

    The saf blue pops. But a bit shallow alone

    The red will have small glints but it's real purpose is to tone back the green tinge when I put the brown on the blue.

    Looking gorgeous. Cant wait for finished piccies out in the wild.

    I hope You're not just showing off your amazing talents, before slapping a thick coat of poiple over the top, are you?

    I tried but doggie would not go with me on that one. So you noticed I like POIPLE. LOL while waiting for this to dry I have to satisy myself with making some crazy pansies
