Colouring things with Copics

I've got a bit carried away with my Copics I think! LOL! - Nothing is safe!
After colouring that charm bracelet last week - if it doesn't move it gets Copic-ed!

I've had a watch in my drawer for about 15 years that I loved but it wasn't an expensive one and the chrome plating eventually wore off leaving a patchy chrome/copper bracelet which tarnished and made a mess of my wrist.  But I loved the face so I didn't throw it out and just gave it to Ada as one of her 'treasures'.

She's now grown out of her 'treasure' so I looked at this watch and thought 'Hmmmmm.....' and hey presto... it is coloured with my Ultramarine Blue pen and varnished!

As you can see, it's also accompanied by an old brooch which had suffered the same fate.  I'm not sure I like the way I've done the brooch but the beauty of this method is, it comes off if you want it to! I could re-colour these on a monthly basis if I so wished!

Anyway - just thought you might like a peek!
In the photo, it looks a bit dusty, but that's just the talc I dried the back off with 'cos it was still a bit tacky from the varnish!
