As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

62/366

And my head told my heart
“Let love grow”
But my heart told my head
“This time no
This time no”63/366

We’ll be washed and buried one day my girl
And the time we were given will be left for the world
The flesh that lived and loved will be eaten by plague
So let the memories be good for those who stay

64/366

And my head told my heart
“Let love grow”
But my heart told my head
“This time no”
Yes, my heart told my head
“This time no
This time no”

Oh the shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved
Was the same that sent me into your arms
Oh and pestilence is won when you are lost and I am gone
And no hope, no hope will overcome


66/366

And if your strife strikes at your sleep
Remember spring swaps snow for leaves
You’ll be happy and wholesome again
When the city clears and sun ascends


67/366

And my head told my heart
“Let love grow”
But my heart told my head
“This time no”

68/366

And my head told my heart
“Let love grow”
But my heart told my head
“This time no
This time no”

Playing with my new Golden Light Molding Paste (modelling paste)!

It’s worked beautifully so far in the test spot, now I just have to wait for it to dry to see what happens. It’s a Light paste so it should retain all the texture it’s got now it’s wet, but I’ve never used it before so it’ll be a surprise to me whatever happens.

It was fairly easy stuff to work with after mixing it with my paint, which I did right on the board with a palette knife. Threw down some paint, grabbed some of the paste right out of the bottle and smashed it around. I smoothed out a fairly thick application of the mixture, then used the top of my palette knife to carve and push some of it into the long ridges. What I scraped off built up on the back of my palette knife on the first stroke or two, but then this was pulled of fairly evenly by the mix still on the board. It only glooped up (technical term) in a few spots, but I mostly fixed that. Once it’s dried and cured I’ll be able to sand or carve those bits off to my liking anyway, not that I’ll do much of that. It’s too gorgeous as-is!
