Hi all!

I just thought I'd share a little penguin I made. My friend and I were competing with a theme of something lighthearted (but related) that you would donate to an art auction for global warming (or other such issues). I wanted to enamel on the black, but I'm not experienced enough with it yet. It was really interesting to attempt initial photographs of it.

You can check out more photos of it, and of my friend's polar bear in a life jacket over on our blog;

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Onyxnox: Thank you, and I applied the india ink with a little paint brush that I had lying around. He'll need a coat or two more so he can have an even consistency. India ink is always super fun with glass, especially if you rub/paint it into the little crevices, then wipe away the ink on the main surface.

Chainmaille: Thank you!
