Painting at Saks for Mother's Day

For Mother's Day Saks hired me to paint little designs on perfumes bottles the day before Mother's Day. Anyone who purchases perfume at Saks the entire week can bring it in today and have a custom design painted on the bottle.  I created a few suggestions on glass and framed it so people could get ideas in case they didn't know what they wanted.  I had to find a way to paint that would be dry immediately.  I found these great acrylic pens.  They are like a felt tip pen, but filled with acrylic paint. Not easy to blend, so the designs are more quick-draw, sketch-like. They are not permanent, but will at least be fun temporarily. It was a fun afternoon.
