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.
