Post~Christmas score


No longer available, but they were originally $59 each at Le Barn du Pottery.  I bagged them for $11.99 each.




I won’t be using them for tree toppers.  At 22.5 inches tall, they’ll make great statement pieces for my living room.

“As is”, they are a bit too glittery.  I think an extremely dry brushing of black (very, very faint), followed by a judicious application of ASCP in “Paris Grey” will tone them down perfectly.

Update:  the more I look at them, the more I think I want to make them into lamps.  Must ponder.

      Aren't they neat? I fell in love with them and kept putting off the purchase because at $59, they were a little too rich for my budget.

      Thanks for stopping by.
