What do you toss into your bag before you leave the house? Everyone has something they don't leave without.. even if it is only keys. I have a few things that I feel funny being without. One is a little red bag that is full of a mixture of loose coins, a few dollars and lip gloss. The bag isn't even pretty anymore, but I can't part with it.
A few other things that always end up coming with me are pictured above. The gold compact holds a little secret.. If you saw it like that you would assume pressed powder for the face, yes?
I found the compact at the Missoula Antique Mall. It still had the remnants of the powder it held to begin with. I cleaned it up and gave it a few coats of Dr. Ph Martins enamel. If I were to do it now, I would use a spray enamel, but at the time, I tried something different. Dustin helped me to sand down some plastic half-pans (the little boxes that hold the paint - they are called pans) to fit. So now they are really.. quarter pans? I used rubber cement to stick them in which makes them movable, but so far I haven't felt the need for changing and I've had this for maybe a year now..
It rarely leaves my side.
The sky blue brush is a Niji Waterbrush. You fill the barrel with water and it flows through the tip while you paint. I could use them exclusively really. They work so well.. whenever I end up using a traditional brush, I feel like Tony Stark. You mean I have to DIP it in water? It doesn't do it ITSELF?
