Okay, I promise to stop posting about Christmas (2011) after this.
This little guy was one of my favorite projects of the season. I saw one (in gray) in a pottery barn catalog a long time ago and wanted one in red. So I put my cookie tools to use again to paint this guy. I found the image by searching “santa pop art,” then put it in my kopykake projector. I used the color, “santa red” in acrylic paint and just painted away.
I got it done in the time that my husband watched a movie. But in the morning I didn’t like how I could see all the brush strokes so I went over it with a second coat. If you look close, it’s still not perfect, but I think the overall look is festive!
Now if I could only get around to making new stockings and perfecting the art of the crockenbouche.
There’s always next year!
