A Lack Of Color

I recently picked up some great owl figures. The little ones were only 50 cents at target, but the big one s my favorite. He was $2.99 at Goodwill. A steal! I knew they all needed a new coat of paint to lessen their lawn ornament appearance, so I decided to go with a crisp coat of white.

I think they came out lovely. The fin thing about white paint is that it can really help bring out the details. I began to notice little feather marks on the tiny owls that could not be seen when they were dark. It wasn't easy though. I must have done about seven coats!
