I painted my Egyptian Gods

They were originally black with gold accents. I thought that was boring ...so

Maat





Sekhmet
I sculpted and put the wings on her statue





Lady Bast





Osiris





Anubis



Isis



Othello's butt blessing..



Othello photobombed the Gods. I am sure Lady Bast approved.

2. I'm sure they appreciate it! Looks great. Consider the fact that all those white Roman statues...

...were originally colorfully painted. Go to town there too!

Sculpy with a metal screen scaffold inside it to make it strong.

8. Cool gods!

You did a wonderful job painting them. I love that you made them shiny. They sparkle like jewels!

Othello knows hes a god! Everyone knows that!

11. I put rhinestones

On them and used glitter and dragonfly glaze. Gloss varnish.

I think the pics didn't do them justice. Had trouble with the lighting.

No wonder everyone wanted to walk like them!
They really are beautiful.

13. My first thought....

When I read the title, my first thought was, "How did you get the cats to sit still." 😸

14. You almost owed me a laptop.

Good one.

As for painting cats, ever see the book Why Paint Cats?

https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/why-paint-cats-the-ethics-of-feline-aesthetics_heather-busch_burton-silver/280701/item/3646401/?gclid=CjwKCAjwzMeFBhBwEiwAzwS8zCDfFuIDGkPTXp6gBC9hAxUIlTol43GjxX7ewJN3wTqPQ_6A7c4njBoCb7UQAvD_BwE#idiq=3646401&edition=2481001

There's another book with the cats and paint thing called Why Cats Paint by the same author.

As for a Cat who painted himself , Othello walked across my paint pallette one day.

He tracked cat paw
prints all over the floor and carpet because I had to catch him to clean his paws.
He didn't like me washing his paws.

The paint stained his fur. But it didnt stain the carpet or floor thankfully. The paint was acrylics.

He had multicolor paws until they faded out. He no longer jumps on the table while I'm doing art projects.

21. No it's not wrong.

She's so beautiful.
When I feel her presence I feel such joy. And she surrounds me with her glorious gentle images.

Bast was my first love,then she led me to her sister Sekhmet.

Sekhmet has walked with me ever since.
Here is a Photoshop I made of Sekhmet
in her honor.



But Lady Bast is always near.
