Angelic Pair

I'm not sure if I'm completely finished with this pair of angels.



I do know that I'm much happier with them like this,



rather than this.  I picked them up at an estate sale this past weekend.  I loved the fact that they were a pair, but that spray painted finish. Not so much.



They're made of plaster, and vintage.  I wanted to give them a softer feel.



This is basically my "Old World" finish, with some dry brushing on top.




I just kept layering till I was happy.  Maybe.




I'm still playing with my colorful  book pages too.  I'll show you some of my variations soon.
