I might be lacking in my cheesy love lingo, but I am quite good at catering to the sentimental.
This year for my boyfriend’s birthday I gave him a coconut.
Not just any coconut, but the shell of a young Thai coconut that I carved the meat out of to make the most delicious Chickenless Burger for our first dinner date. Yeah, I know… too awesome right?!
I had a lot of fun with this project, it was really cool to paint a rounded and uneven surface. At times it really reminded me of working with and making jewellery. That sort of hunched over, squinty eyed focus that happens when you’re holding something in your hand and being ever so delicate when working on small details. I really enjoy working on small little lines, its such a huge challenge for me. To be able to hold the brush still, smooth and flow with continued fluid motions can be a little difficult. Although the end result is quite pleasing if you invest the time and patience. No matter where I looked I wasn’t able to find a small enough paint brush, ha! I kept looking for a three hair, but no luck. Regardless, I was able to finish without.
