We are going to kick off the week with a lovely little 6. The triangular little ornaments that characterize this font are in full effect here. This figure feels unstable to me, the protrusions feel make the number feel like it should be spinning. After a good scrubbing, you can see the color of the grain, I love the streaks of gold that cross the face. I also love the spotting that’s happening, what a great texture!
