Even though Easter's come and gone & I did
NOT enjoy my first painting experience, I decided
to stick with. Besides, I have new brushes and paints,
and it's not in my nature to give up!
Big bunny needed something for his back pack,
so I got out the sculpey clay and made some
small eggs. I used the extruder tool to squish
out some grass. Then baked it according
to the directions.
I had only purchased a few basic colors of paint,
a big bottle of brown and one small bottle of
white........Duh! You need white to mix the color
you want! Live and learn.
So, the bunny ended up rather dark. I also used the
dark brown creme wax as a finish on him. It
definitely darkened the paint.
Next time, I will paint him with softer colors
& gussy up his clothing. I also think he'd make a nice
white Easter bunny. However, this guy will make a nice
doorstop at Easter time!
I also had pigs to paint.
(The Santas will be painted when I'm in a
Xmas mood and have the right colors.)
I used the dark creme wax on the pigs,
I like the look.
White lucky pigs for St. Patricks
Day and pink farm pigs.
I also had some primitive hand whittled wooden
farm animals I gessoed and painted as accessories
for my Maddy doll.
I used the dark wax on these too.
They were so much fun to paint..........
Did I just say I enjoyed painting???
