The Ballerina Wish Musicbox by Gildsoul

     Sometimes a wish is worded wrongly or misunderstood from it's original intent. In this case Pat gained immortality as a music box gold ballerina figurine. Not exactly as planned, but it became a happy situation for the solid gold ballerina once named "Pat".

Thanks to Jumppro sending the great idea my way that I made into an illustration.

Done in one day on an iPad with Apple pencil and Sketchbook software.

Do you do requests?

If it's a good idea and I have time a request, more a suggestion, may influence a future art piece. I have a half dozen suggestions from others on my plate, but do give a suggestion.

Started in the morning, took short breaks for lunch and dinner, finished by early evening. Trying to force myself to work faster. My art takes too long because I try to over analyze it, make it perfect and hesitate. A bad habit I'm trying to cure.

Another person that learned too late that one needs to be careful when wording a wish!!  Nice!

I'd like to see version of this where the ballerina is porcelain, thus making her likely to end up in some child's bedroom instead of an art museum.

24 karat gold, pure 100% gold is a very soft metal, it can be scratched by a fingernail. Gold is strengthened by adding small amounts of other metals to make gold alloy. 18 karat gold is a harder, more durable metal used to make gold jewelry. Much harder than pure gold.

The gold ballerina is a piece of living gold jewelry, durable, strong and wear resistant.
