It's starting to take on real character. I have painted the piece with many different blue, green and metallic acrylic paints. You will notice the edges have been burnt and a bit of the interior has also been burnt away with the heat tool. Because there are so many layers built up on the already very stiff Timtex the overall piece is quite hard, not flexible at all. I selected these colors because I'm still looking for the ideal way to represent both the Chihuly glass and glaciers. This is getting a bit closer than anything else I've attempted so far.
