  1. Such a cool alteration, Kerstin!
    Love how you turned a simple candle holder into something so magical with "just" the use of paints and media!

  3. Kirsten I love this & those wings are fabulous how did you get that rich copper lustre on the candle holder? x

    1. Many thanks Dee, I use metallic lustre only as highlight on gears and lightbulb, the candleholder was already copper. Kerstin
