Day 2 orange…

When I think about orange, Greek pottery springs to mind. This design I’ve done twice before, once handpainted and once stamped. I’m using the stamping plates from Moyou London explorer collection, plate 18 that I didn’t stamp with last time.

I started with a base of Max Factor “Satsuma” and using the cling film technique added Essence “Happy” and Loreal 805 (a brown/gold colour). After stamping I applied a matte top coat.

The stamp I’ve used on the thumb, despite being on Suki plate 06, has always looked Greek to me. Back tomorrow with yellow.

Greek pottery….

Another quick post today. For the prompt “fun”, I am trying to imitate the look of Greek pottery on my nails. I have done this theme before and spent quite a while hand painting the figures. See this post.

I started with a base of orange, pale yellow and brown applied with cling film. Over that I stamped with various images from Moyou plate 18 from the Explorer collection and filled in bits here and there with black acrylic paint, so it would look more like pottery. I love this look!
