Finally Finished.

I am so pleased to report that my Fairy Lustre piece is now finished. For those of you who are not familiar with Fairy Lustreware or missed the link on a previous post click here to see  where the inspiration came from.

I Believe

I used Lumiere paints for the background and her wings and they do shimmer but you can't see it in the photo.

I used acrylic,oil pastel, charcoal pencil, mixed  foliage stamps and permanent ink in black and gold.

The finished painting is lying on my desk and has been, in various stages of progression, for a little while now so I hope this post qualifies for WOYWW even though my desk isn't actually pictured here.

Thank you for visiting. x


  1. It turned out just beautifully. Your fairy is just perfect. I love this.

  3. Oh that is lovely, makes me wonder what she is thinking.

  4. This has turned out really beautifully, love it loads, Annette x

  5. Very pretty. It's always hard to get the shimmer to show in a photo. Kyla #32 WOYWW

  6. I adore fairylustre ware, only wish I was rich enough to own some!! I saw some recently on a visit to Liverpool's word museum. They had several pieces and I was entranced by all that shimmery gold. I love your piece too it is so pretty!. I always have lots of metallic sparkle in my work but it never photographs wel.l

  7. Lovely painting- and where is your desk?
    thanks for stopping by, your kind words and the snoop around your place.

  8. Oh Fuzzie, that's gorgeous... I wish I could see the lustre of the lumieres. I haven't had any experience with these paints. Are they anything like Perfect Pearls or Twinkling H2O's? How is your thumb these days? I do hope it's better. I can't imagine the frustration of not being able to paint and be creative for so long.

    Thanks for your nice comment - I am looking forward to ironing the roofing felt to see how it behaves. Having a rest day today as not feeling too good. My poor desk is suffering from neglectitis.

    Happy WOYWW,
