Almost Wordless Wednesday - or a Dilly Bar Epiphany

I have only a few words to say about this portrait I just completed... I was rather scared about tackling the Dilly Bar...how to achieve that wonderful shiny raised area in the centre, and keep the little melted dribbly bits...

Anyway, with a little masking fluid (and an insane amount of luck) I managed to achieve what I was aiming for in ONE GLAZE!!!

Yes, I'm excited :-)

Since you've drawn my attention to it, of course that's what I look at first, but then my eye is drawn up to those beautiful blue green eyes. This will make a lovely present for somebody!

excellent work! I love the way you rendered the texture of the ice cream bar and the little girl's face.
