Corgi’s in love

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all. I just hope everyone feels how much love these two corgi’s are.

In case you need a reminder. You are a wonderful person deserving of finding the perfect person whom loves you.

This was done for my Patreon art and the original is available for sale. I hope to have prints available soon.

It’s on Bristol smooth with Copic marker.

Still a bit wet

I painted this little guy w a variety of gay pride colors. But kept it sorta day off the dead ish too. To give it that glowing green zombie color I painted the inside glowy green.

Krylon vs Golden UV spray

Test board before sunlight

I want my original pieces of art to be more light fast. It’s not like the art is going to fade before your eyes or anything. I have just found that after a few years in a hot art tent all summer some of the colors can dim.

Some people solve this by putting all their art behind expensive UV glass. It’s a great way to go and if you have a few special pieces you keep in bright rooms I suggest it. I am looking for a lower budget option.

First I taped off area i didn’t want to get fixative on. I used Krylon Kamar Varnish as a base level.

Second I applied Golden Gloss Archival Varnish to the top. Some of them have one and some have two coats. The two coats w fixative are definitely shinier.

Third I applied Krylon Satin UV Archival to the sets in the bottom. Some of them have one and some have two coats. Again the two coats are shinier.

There are a few spots that took damage from the pro art tape I used. I did the shirt trick and everything but some of the color came off. I made notes on the board where this applies.

The spots that have just fixative and the spots with just UV sprays are rougher in texture for some reason. I do not know why. However, most people do not touch their art so we shall see how they fair when light is applied.

Now I will set these in a window that gets direct sun and see what happens. It is, of course going to rain for the next 5 days (written on Sunday. Being posted on Wednesday)
