What a happy accident, Lisa! It turned out beautifully. It's a wonderful reminder that art sometimes has a mind of its own. Those Steampunk Gelatos keep begging me to buy them and I will as soon as I can find them locally! Along with the Glass Bead Glitter Gel. That stuff is awesome. Thank you for sharing your talent.
