I like it, but I'd be afraid I'd tear it off somehow.  It is beautiful though.

The boyfriend and I have an ongoing peacock obsession... this would make an awesome detail for our bedroom. Beautiful work. Can I ask what adhesive you used? Thanks!

That's gorgeous.  The peacock feather looks all sparkly.  Is it naturally like that, or did you do something to it?  Also, did you do anything special to get the paint to stick to the plastic switchplate?

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

the sparkle is just the feather, they're so beautiful. For  the paint to stick, i sand the plate to roughen it up, than paint, and then i sometimes coat in a sealent, but the paint stays on fine with no seal.

That is so beautiful!  I've been thinking of painting our spare bedroom green and those colors would look absolutely beautiful!
