Holiday skin

Tonight I used the wonderful disperse dye contained in the even more wonderful roll-on deodorant bottles to paint up some papers that might have skin possibilities. My pallet was orange, scarlet and salmon. I see my tart as fairly gin soaked, with many a broken capillary. I'm sure we can manage that.

The marvellous thing about ironing these papers off onto pelmet vilene is you get two for the price of one. When you turn last night's very rosy torso over it reveals a paler version of its former self on the other side. Very useful. Perhaps our tart, in addition to her heart of gold, will have a pallid body to contrast with her ruddy complexion.

That is a great advert for skin products Sally. I just love the colours and I'm now saving deodorant bottles!
