Did you draw the black lines or did you use the black color from the sunglasses? Doesn't the black color "bleed" too much with this kind of paints? Not easy to paint over black plastic. What is painted with the Faber Castell pens? Just the black lines?

Greetings, I actually painted two base coats of white acrylic first - black lines were drawn on after. To try to use the black from the glasses themselves would have been too tedious. The pens I used to ink in the black were these : http://artgraphic.fabercastell.com/products/product_detail.aspx?id=0F421F16A3AC48BC862655DCBF34C07E

If you let the acrylic dry completely then the ink won`t bleed. The weird thing, though, is that only the brush tip worked really well. The other pen tips would initially be fine but after a while would stop working on the surface for some reason.

Just make sure you have a good base coat and the rest of the painting should be fine. Acrylic will crack or chip off very easily so that`s why you definitely need a finish of some sort to seal it in once your work is complete.

Faber Castell pens were used solely for black lines.

Thanks for questions (: !

Hey, sorry for this extremely late reply but.... Took me about three days on and off to complete [ish]. It only took so long since I left them alone for quite a while to dry in between coats of paint. I did make an initial sketch but when I actually penciled in the design on the frames I realized I had to omit a lot of detail, only due to the fact that the outline I sketched was much larger than the actual size of the sides. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask. I`ll probably really actually reply more speedily next time ^^; Thanks .
