Simply Saturday and Pebeo

Last day for our Pebeo paints week. I must admit that I find these paints fascinating. It's fun to watch them change through time and the final result is always stunning. 
Gay is with us today, and she recycled boxes and jars. I'm sure you won't look at your little mini jam pots the same way now. Those are so cute. 
Please, let us know what you thought of this week in a comment below. 

This is what I started with, it was fun emptying them   The small jars are individual marmalade or jam pots, I don't like leaving them behind in restaurants, I fear they get thrown away! Now I can re-use them.

After a few hours and still tacky I added some flat backed pearls and this is how it looked completely dry

I wanted to see what the paints looked like on a large area and was facinated watching the reaction on these large tins. I mixed the paint thoroughly and poured it carefully onto the tin lids, adding the other colour as I went. The papers were added around the base when everything was completely dry.
