W8N2Surf - Thank you for the comment. I'm glad you like the thread.

This is a project I started last summer for the TC Art Swap. Because of time constraints I knew I was not going to finish it on time so I submitted these two pictures for the swap. They were test drawings for the larger black velvet picture:

I'm now working towards finishing this project. Mounted on top of the picture will be a black light and there will be a timer that switches the black light off and on. There will be a cover over the light so it won't be visible. I always liked the windows in the Enchanted Tiki Room that simulated lightning and rain. When I saw the volcano window in Trader Sam's at Disneyland Resort I thought maybe I should have my own magical window.

Here is the previous progress from last summer and as I near completion I'll post more pictures


Here's the sketch of the painting.

Like everything else I had no idea in the beginning how to do this so I needed to do some testing. The body of the painting will actual be oil pastels with UV paint over the pastels. The first attempt was on paper that's for acrylic paint but the pastels didn't adhear that well.

Here it is with the UV paint.

My next test was on a sample of the black velvet fabric.

And here it is with UV paint.
