Green for the day

Just put this beauty on my ebay. The vintage flower is at a bad angle, guess I should take another photo. lol Isnt that a beautiful green silk ribbon!
Well, I am now a certified Copic user. lol. Do I give you the pros and cons or do I just give you my opinion of the Copics? Or do I tell you what the overall class thought? Just what do I tell you about them? Basically, they're not for me. I did love the air gun contraption...but $200 for a little compressor and $6 for ONE color...a little expensive. I did take my wool to see how it would work with the air gun...it did work...but I really prefer dunking my wool in colored dye and working with the color. I thought maybe it would work for my birdies checks, it sprayed to large of an area...oh well, it was good to learn.
Tomorrow is a watercolor class where I get to just paint chocolates all day...now that will be heaven. I will do some small ones to put into glass charms.
