Biscuit Tin - Portrait of 1940s Glamour Pin-Up Girl





I bought this tin of Belgian Biscuits because I loved the tin which was in pure silver and embossed with strokework. I painted the background black, wiped off paint from embossed strokeworks to leave it silver, then I painted this portrait in the centre.

  2. Thank you my dear, I enjoyed doing this. In fact it took longer preparing the background than doing the actual portrait.
