Metallic Beet Red

Beets are often more of a dusty purply-red than red-red so I thought the metallic pens would work well for them.  Only – not so much.   So I kind of have radioactive glowing beets.  That’s fine with me.  I never eat them anyway, lol.

  1. The metallic pens work well on black, the little flecks of black grounding the work. (Yes, seems like a pun, but not intended.) This would make a perfect sign advertising red beets for folks wanting to buy them – to eat!
