I thought it would be fun to share some random crafting knowledge 😊 so here er go! Back when i made the dreadblades for Vanessa Vancleef i used liquid latex as a base coating 🌟at first i used regular brushes to apply it, but they are impossible to clean! 😅 So i started using a silicone brush (normally used for cooking) and it was way better and you can actually clean it ❤️ picture 2 is both types of brushes after bring 'cleaned' 😅

🌹🌹🌹This is the story of my demon Acantha. A once beautiful Nymph, who fell deeply in love with a strong and fearless God. Unfortunately for her, the God only wanted her so she could bring him children as beautiful as himself.
Cast away, Acantha decided to disguise herself as thorns and hide in bushes of gorgeous red roses, in a valley that neighboored many villages. Acantha would send whispers through the winds to lovers in these nearby villages. Promising wealth, youth, and beautiful children, to those who came and picked the budding twin roses with black thorns.
Lovers would travel for days to the valley in search. Many of them, would stumble across the bush, however they did not find what they were promised in those sweet whispers. Those who picked the roses in turn found their souls being picked from their bodies. Acantha would sew their souls into the petals. After she collected enough she would present a bouquet to the God that threw her away. She hoped that the love from the souls would pour out and touch his heart, convincing him to take her back.
However, there was never enough. Acantha continues to strip souls from the naive travlers to thise day. The more she takes the more her own soul chips away, slowly turning her into nothing but a hollow, sharp, thorn.🌹🌹🌹 (Acantha itself is the Greek name for Thorn. The story and look I created are my own, but are very loosely based on the mythological tale of a nymph named Acantha who was loves by Apollo)

As everyone picks his/her “word” for this year, I find myself gravitating towards something more solid, rather than descriptive. “Scars”.
While not all of them define us, everyone has them, and the deepest ones are usually on our heart. Oh the stories they could tell. We can choose to see the darkness, or we can choose to find the beauty in each and every one.
This reminds me of where I’ve been, how I’ve grown, what I’ve overcome, and to embrace who I am now because of them. For the first time, I choose to see the color & beauty in mine.
