Sometimes You Just Have To Paint An Elephant

Worn and weathered, a little like me, 
sometimes you just have to spruce up a little.
I painted a latex house paint base
added details with acrylics
and stained the entire job.
Looking much better now.

You did a great job. I thought he looked alright weathered because that's what an elephant looks like, but you made him look ten times better.

He looks fantastic! I never know how to do things like this. My projects turn out looking worse than if I had just let them be. LOL

Amazing job. Can I make an appointment?

Ginny Hartzler said...

Now he is a happy elephant! He looks brand new! He looks very heavy, which a proper elephant should be. You have an artists eye, I would not have known where to start.

I agree sometimes elephants just need a little TLC and you certainly gave him that.
A very handsome elephant now.

All the best Jan

I really love this. I have a great respect for elephants. It is proven that they feel emotion.
