Nice Trophy!

No need for any Primer?

What kind of paint did you use?


At first, I thought it was going to be a Candle Holder…
... then it went to a Chess Piece… the King…
... a Pilgrim King… LOL …
... then, it Hit Me!

Nice going!

Joe- Watercolor paint for a washed out look. I sanded some wear marks through it, tried to make it look like an old wooden toy. It was maple, which took the paint just fine. I wanted it to soak in a bit.

Nice web site, Stumpy. I watched an episode or two and I expect that you’ll do quite well at it if you stay with it. Congratulations.

That’s neat.

If you make a few more for the Tubafore contest, entries should go wild!
