Fran, you did a wonderful job, they look so real. When my sister was pregnant of my godchild, I painted a melon on her look so real! It was non toxic paint that can expand when dry. Cheers! Line :)

HELP! I finally got the proper foil varnish, just to find out that the silver has already tarnished.... now what do I do? Is there a way to "polish" it?
This is superb dear Sonja. I have seen many of your other paintings now and came to the conclusion that I have got to spend more time to study all of them.... view answer
