Carlos the Cat

By Erika Moen on August 17, 2012

My great friend, Tracy Puhl, recently had a birthday and this was the little portrait of her beloved cat, Carlos, that I whipped up. I think it’s about 6″ x 6″, on a hangable wooden panel.

(If you are wondering why that hotlink to her name goes to the company Glad Rags, that is because she is the owner of it! Since meeting her, I have completely switched from using disposable menstrual products to reusable and I love them.)

This was my first attempt at using actual gold leaf. It came out… okay. Haha, I look forward to trying it again, hopefully with more controlled results. There are definitely still gold flecks stuck to my floor and other places.
