Paint it yourself – Cardboard letters

So after I painted my Mexican inspired candy skulls, (which proved to be quite a hit among my crowd)  I had Jordan’s mum asking me if I can do anything similar with the letters she recently purchased via Nononthehighstreet. She had her’s and his initials(J & A)and she wasn’t sure what to do with them except displaying them somewhere in the house for everybody to see.

You can really find these letters anywhere, these for example are from here:  and are a tad cheaper…

Working on them:

I used the same deluxe paint for wood that I bought  in Homebase a few months before to paint my tired & plain wood kitchen chair and later on my skulls.

And here they are like a finished product:

If you do have time and a bit of £££ you can make this as a really nice present for birthdays, newborns or just yourself,

Paint it yourself – Ceramic Skulls

Last spring I stumbled on this cool coffee shop in Greenwich.  What makes this place cool is that they offer paint your own ceramic parties! It is a popular place for a hen night & kids parties… I went there for a quick cuppa and bought two of their ceramics skulls (for him&her). As I was in an artist rush to paint them myself I havent took any pictures of them before.  But I did find exactly the same skull picture on net. So this is what they/it look like before the paint. (without the golden tooth) :-)

And this is what they look now. I went for a mexican candy look.

What do you think?
