  1. Dear Ken
    Great ideas! I am a friend of John L.. He thought I should look at your work. I am glad I did.

  2. Thanks Nancy, Yes, Micro fine glitter is the best for the copics. And burnishing with the finger is important so there's no loose glitter.

  3. Great job Ken. Found it interesting that you colored the fish after adding the glitter. Always like to get new ideas and will try that one. Is the glitter extra fine?
