I made a ton more but here are 4 that are completely finished:Forest friends
Deer, rabbit, hedgehog, mouseAt play
I am feeling so-so about the hedgehog. I think he looks more like a porcupine with a buzz cut. Or a turtle with whiskers.
Also, we've been talking a lot about the paint rubbing off. On the animals above, I used a very diluted brown water color. I used some brighter colors- red, blue, green- on some other pieces, and even though they were diluted also (you can still see the wood grain) they started to rub off while I polished, 24 hours after painting.
Do I need to dry them longer? Stick them in front of a space heater? Set the paint in the oven? I was really disappointed when I saw the beautiful color rub away with my polishing rag, leaving a blotchy mess.
