My friend gave me this cute little guy yesterday and said, "This is really not my style, but I am sure you could do something with it."
Well, it really wasn't my style either, but she was right. I COULD do something with it! I got out my "Almond" spray paint from Krylon, and went to town. This is what he looked like after SEVERAL light coats of paint.
Better, but still needing some work. (When I talked with my friend this morning, she asked how the bunny was turning out. I told her that when you start with weird, you are still going to end up with weird, but that it would be an improvement!)
I decided to glaze the bunny. I have mentioned in previous posts that I just water down a little paint and make my own glaze, and that it is exactly what I did again!
Then I use a small paint brush to get the paint into all the places that I really want the glaze to stick.
The I wipe the glaze off with rag, being sure to go against the grain and not wiping off all of the glaze that I just applied.
To finish him off, that sounds a bit brutal!, I added some leftover greens from another project. Some little flowers would probably look better, but this is what I had! I also made a couple of burlap rosettes and hot glued them right over the previous tulips.
As I am looking at this picture and typing this post, I realize that I forgot to glaze the inside of one of the feet! Oops! I will have to fix that, but, for now, let's just say I was doing this as an example to show you the difference between the glazed and non-glazed paint. Mmmmkay?
