Smoky Patina

Hey guys! Here’s the pictures from my latest tutorial. Ever since I got Forest Green Pigment last year, I’ve had the hardest time working with it. It’s really dark, and blends out A LOT so, it can be difficult and messy. Old Gold is one of the most unique pigment I’ve come across. It’s bronzy-green -gold. It flashes and Orange-Bronze and a Neon-Chartreuse. I’ve paired this one with oranges with good results, but I like this combo best so far ^_^

    Love it love it love it. Also, I loved your coming out day video. I worked really hard to get Issue 1 voted down in Ohio in 2004 (to some devastating results). It was the redefinition of “civil union” to exclude homosexuals. I love the idea of the rainbow underwear. My wedding colors are “all colors” so that fits in perfectly.

    All my love, woman.
