Winter Aconite – Erantis

 
In March the Winter Aconites show their small yellow heads in their large collar of green leaves.
The base color is 2 coats of Essie Navigate Her, and to make it look more like the ground in march, I sponged random areas with Butter London Wallis, and finally I painted the flowers with acrylic color. Before I top coated with Seche Vite, I on each flower added a little dab of China Glaze Fairy Dust, but that’s hard to see. The flowers aren’t more than 3-5 millimeters in diameter including the leaves on my nails, so that is pretty small to give a lot of detail. IRL they looked really OK, but I see a lot of flaws on these macro shots.

I marts måned viser erantisserne sine små gule hoveder i deres store grønne blad krave.
Grundfarven er 2 lagt Essie Navigater Her, og for at skabe en jordlignende illusion, har jeg duppet tilfældige områder med Butter London Wallis. Derefter malede jeg blomsterne med akrylmaling, og før jeg lagde toplak prikkede jeg blomsterhovederne med China Glaze Fairy Dust, men det kan man nu ikke rigtigt se. Blomsterne fylder på neglene ikke mere end 3-5 mm i diameter inklusive bladene, så det var lidt svært at give dem flere detaljer. De så nu OK ud i virkeligheden, men forstørret som her, ser jeg alle fejl – det evige dilemma :)
Vi du se flere blomster? Så skal du klikke på fanebladet "Flowers/blomster" i menuen øverst på siden..
