If You Want My Body

It is Retro time over at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge.  I have this wonderful DCWV Paper Stack that reminds me of some wallpaper that we had in a house when I was in college. It had this gold and brown foil wallpaper on the walls that was at least 15 years old in style.  So when I looked at the Kenny K images I have, this one just was perfection.

I colored him up with Copics. I couldn't decide whether he should wear the gold or blue, but the gold looked funny, so I opted for the blue leisure suit look. I cut out the image I had started coloring gold and used some stencil glue on the back of it to make it sticky. I then placed it over this fella, and airbrushed. A little bit of speckling snuck under the mask because the stencil glue is so light. I kond of like how it turned out though, because it makes it look more like night.

Colors Used:   B000, 00, 02, 05, Y21, 23, E0000, 000, 00, 01, R20, R24, R27, R39, E13, 15, 17, 18, C1, 3, 5
Airbrushing - B32, 34, 37

A note about the coloring. For his glasses I used B0000 and RV000 feathered together to give it a rose colored glasses look. When I was done, I used Crystal Effects and shined up his glasses, disco ball and shoes.

Thanks for hopping over here and checking out Mr. Sexy.  See you again soon.



  1. This is absolutely fantastic. The coloring, the effect, the glaze, the design all come together to make it wow! The stamp is a hoot too.

    There's just one problem. You did a song plant in my head, darn it!!!!
