We Will Not Win The Battle Of Values At Levels




Wrapping up things with the face-side of the Dunkin' Donuts nonpareil logo. The white is much easier to apply because our base structure and outlines are already laid in from our application of the colored nonpareils. I'm using a thick coat of polycrylic in small sections before I lay the nonpareils onto the surface. Once the entire surface has been covered, the work will recieve several thin coats of clear spraypaint to help seal the work and prevent the nonpareils from dropping off.



Glory be... the ants have arrived. Just as I had hoped, things beyond my control are happening to the drawings I've left outside. Ants are collecting the sugar nonpareils and the sugar water left from the night befores rain. I have a feeling that they might be gone by tomorrow. I'll leave the pieces alone for a few days but I might try and bring my little friends back at some point so I can seal them under a coat of clear spraypaint... or maybe I'll do that after I apply the other hand-drawn applications to the works.
