wonderful work! I really like how you did the colors and used texture.
What medium did you use? I bet it took a LOT of paint Smiley

Thanks! Well, I used a lot of spackle for the texture, and then gel medium to seal it, and then I painted with acrylic. I don't think it took as much paint as one might think! Of course, I didn't measure (lol) but I'm pretty sure it was less than it looks!
