Art Anthology Paints Available at

I wanted to share my FABER-PUNK Eggs  at Altered Pages... I  used paints purchased here at to create them!
This is just a sample of some of the colors of Art Anthology Sorbet Dimension Paint - Gold, Baby Blue Eyes & Kenyan available at

The egg base is plastic eggs from the dollar store!!! Covered with tissue and gesso to create a base that the paint could adhere to! 

To embellish the hardware store is a great place to get metal!!!  I used locking washers from most of me steampunk findings! A few charms and DEW DROPS!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
