Thanks. The light coat of gold paint makes her appear a little more.. uh.. dull? I don't know what word I really want to use here. The gold masks a little bit of the pretty red that showed up in the photo (the gold made my flash go crazy. Couldn't get a clear shot.).
Heh, interesting story behind the gold paint.. I have some beautiful paint my dad gave me that goes on clear, but in the sun, gives you a GORGEOUS rainbow glitter effect all over. I thought I had found a gold glitter version of that paint, which is what I thought I was putting on this snake..
Turns out it's not! It's just spray gold paint. Oops! Still looks pretty, just not what I was going for originally.
