The Iron Fairies

I found this interesting little book at a store in Victoria call "Instincts". Its kind of a gift store specializing in tarot cards, crystals, figurines of fairies and dragons etc. They carry a line of cast iron figures of fairies and this book is about them and their story. There is a metal plate on the front that has the design raised up and when I brought it home it was all rusty and so cool. But you could barely make out what the design was. So I set about fixing it up, I sanded the raised part and then coloured it with my watercolour crayons. Now the design pops out pretty nicely and yet keeps the gnarly look. :)

Ooooh! Having seen it before, that is definitely an improvement.
