Let's make us some kitties-step 7-paint it














Well, we're at the last step and almost done! Just one thing and that's to paint in the eyes. I use a gloss black enamel paint for the eyes. They can be a bit tricky. First, I'm not a painter by trade. Second, painting on a curved glass surface feels a bit odd. Third, I've got to try and get both eyes to look somewhat similar.



















And here it is ready for photographs and a new place in my Etsy store.

Aw, thanks so much! I like making black kitties, but they are so tough to photo.
