I found the mold for this little guy recently while looking through mold catalogs. He is so unusual, normally, I don’t purchase molds like him but I fell in love with him and several others. Really he is so ugly he is cute! I was worried that no one would like him, but lo and behold, he's attracted a lot of attention right off the bat. If you're thinking he'd make a good addition to your kitchen windowsill, he's just waiting for you to take him home. Also he can be made into a planter by cutting the daisies off on top of his head and glazing the inside. Here are the directions for painting him."
Basecoat piece black.
  • Dry brush wood areas with fog, light grey and highlight with white. Using a clean brush dry brush teeth white.
  • Dry brush all leaves shadow green (use a heavy coat of this color), follow with leaf green and highlight with willow green.
  • Dry brush daisy with cranberry and paradise. Tap mustard on the center of the daisys and highlight with flaxen yellow.
  • Dry brush mushrooms with toast and highlight tops with mustard.
  • Paint eyes white allowing paint to dry. Paint iris with real brown or a color of your choice with a black pupil.
  • Blush cheeks with dusty rose (Kimple).
  • Spray with sealer.
