The final phase of the little jewelry armoire project is the addition of the beautiful BUGS and some beautiful jewelry that they are are flying around with and admiring.

OF COURSE these bugs could not, and would not, fly around with heavy gem jewelry or strings of pearls with their little arms and legs. But they are in an enchanted tropical forest at night!
Everything becomes possible.

This is a great opportunity to use all my metallic and interference paints. I have had a great time mixing a wonderful variety of metallic colours, mixing many different golds with unpigmented colours to make golden, or coppery greens, pinks, blues, yellows... and to paint the gems and pearls.

I particularly like this little moth!
