painting on cement

I wanted to be able to paint in a bezel but I did not just want to paint on paper and cover it in resin.  So I gave Cement a shot.  I pored cement into a bezel and allowed it to dry.

I then drew my design with a fine tip sharpie and colored it with prizmacolor.  I used a but of gilders paste to jazz it up.  I was really happy with the results, but I was bummed to find that s soon as i added the resin, the dark color of the cement came back.  I will need to practice with this to keep the clean white color.  
I added a large carnelian briloette to the bottom.  I need to finish beading the rest of the necklace.

I am happy with the results and I like how the painting turned out.  The bezel is not really heavy.  It doesn't weigh any more that it would if it were full of resin.
