Thanks! Somebody else said that they do draw over acrylic with sharpies just fine. Maybe if I waited longer for it to dry (I waited a couple of days, but it's been pretty humid here so I think the piece was still a little bit tacky). Thank goodness for the Marks-a-lot!

Wow, this is really amazing! Way to take an old bookshelf and give it new life. Not only are the colors gorgeous but the flow is perfect. Each figure is positioned perfectly. So impressive!!

That came out incredibly well! It looks so professional.

Did you borrow the projector from somewhere or...?

My grandfather gave me the projector. It's a really small one, I believe you can find them in hobby and art supply stores (probably ebay too, I always check there first for a good deal on anything). I don't think they are too expensive either. The only problem is that it only projects images that are about 4'', so I had to play around in Photoshop for a bit resizing images.

And thanks again to everyone for your nice comments! I'm definitely inspired to try my hand at furniture painting again (as soon as I can find a good discarded piece!)

Great job!  I love the colors and how everything comes together.  I would've thought the drawings would be too busy, but they blend right in the look!  Smiley

That's amazing, especially for traced out images. Just a tip, paint pens work better on projects like this, whether they're sharpie or any other brand. Keep up the great work.
