I recently shared a painted Dr Who Tardis Candle, this time I am sharing a Star Wars Death Star Candle I hand painted with acrylic paints. I used the ball candles you can find in many stores, my daughter currently buys these and paints them with henna theme designs. She has one candle left over so I thought I would give it a go. I love how it turned out, even though it's not easy painting a round candle.

If you have been following me recently you will see that I have become quite a Dr Who Fan, and my 9 year old is an avid fan too! I decided that seeing as I have also started enjoying Paper Cutting I would put both of those likes together and design something jointly. So here is a Dr Who Paper cutting that I have recently done. I really love how it looks framed.

I have been busy painting recently. I decided on a new style using square canvasses. I decided to paint a local scene to where I live, this is Penshaw Monument. Whenever you travel out of thew City you see this in the skyline and when you return you know you are nearly home! I have climbed the hill to the top on numerous occasions and been on the monument. I will try and share some photos below of this lovely monument.
The photo collage below shows my youngest daughter 2 years ago also painting Penshaw Monument in acrylics!

I am sharing some photos of some face painting designs I have recently done. I have put together a collage of Sci-Fi designs from Dr Who, Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Some are designs I have done on the face and some have been done on the arm.

If you have seen my previous post, you will know that I am a Dr Who fan. My youngest is also a fan so I thought I would do some artwork to go in her room. So I have been busy painting recently. She is also a Star Wars fan so I might be sharing some more art work on my blog with a Star Wars theme too.
This is just a plain white canvas that I painted in a galaxy colour background, which I splattered with white paint using a toothbrush to give a white starry effect. Then I hand painted the Tardis on the top of the background. My daughter loves this painting.

I admit it, I am a Dr Who fan and so is my youngest daughter. My elder daughter is normally the one who decorates candles but I thought I would have a go myself at decorating a candle. So I chose the theme 'Dr Who' and hand painted a Tardis onto a plain pillar candle with a Galaxy theme background.
I am quite pleased with the outcome for a first attempt. I might have a go at some other designs now.
