Painting the Beads

I am finally painting the beads.

I have these done so far, and I separated them into trays depending on what kind of finish they get.

These will get a matte varnish

These will get a satin varnish

These are waiting to have the crackle technique done to them, then they will be a gloss finish

Here is a little before and after pic of the matte beads, before the antique layer and after.............

all pretty and bright

and antiqued!

I never get tired of that before and after !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I will painting more tonight, I have a lot more to do.  More then what got done today.  then everything needs varnish.  I am trying not to think about how much I need to do, and just keep going!
