Thanks for looking. I haven’t been in the shop for several weeks, too much going on. But the last 2 days I was able to make up some stuff. The newest thing that I have been trying is Hair Sticks or Needles. People with long hair wrap up that long hair into a ball and stick one or two of these Hair Sticks into them to keep them from unwinding. I don’t have to worry about that any more, my long hair days are over.
The bright green one just made tonight and it is unfinished. The pink one had two beads on it that I colored black, 7 1/2 inches long. All Hair Sticks were turned out of 3/4 inch stock, so everything is smaller than that. The Purple and Black one has a small Acorn on top of it, that I colored and used my Wagner texture tool on it. That was a sight, big tool small acorn! That one measures out at 7 inches. The Autumn colored on was my first Stick and it measures out at 6 1/4 inches long, the shortest one. Took some close ups of the tops so that you could see them.
The whistles are still fun, but haven’t sold any. Got ask to make stuff for a Charity auction in Texas, and gave one to a young girl that had a serious surgey, and gave a bunch away. Everyone wants one, but no sales!
The whistles are not finished yet, but will be soon. Everything on this project is or will be finished with sprayed on conversion varnish. The last pictue: Purple and black, Yellow and Purple, Walnut, and Red White and Blue. Thanks Mary Anne for the Whistle Blog!
Heck, these are just like pens, make them up and give them away….... Hey, thanks for looking and have a great day.
