I've had these sewing scissors since I was a young woman. They are really wonderful--and ever so sharp. Drawing them was a real challenge. And then there was all that shiney stuff, reflections. Kind of a nightmare. I couldn't figure out which were islands and which were oceans. Now that it's over, I think it would work well to paint the black parts of the reflections first--call them islands and then the lighter color parts for ocean. Bling last, of course.
