Painting Gloves

I Love vintage gloves, especially a new- old pair that have never been worn. Even better, is when it is a soft washable doe skin pair such as these. They just don't make lovely gloves like this anymore.  I have been feeling the urge to paint more gloves recently. It's the perfect project to do in the afternoon after dinner, as I can set up a little TV tray and paint away while the huby watches his shows.  I really wanted to come up with a steam punk design that had not been done as yet.   I took inspiration from a lovely Egyptian scarab that was in full wing spread.   I played up the top of the wings mechanics in an almost bone like construction and painted in some detailed wings and jewels.  Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed painting and designing this pair.
