Easy Makeover

Good Afternoon, Everyone.......Here is an easy makeover and it was fun.  Found these owls at a flea market and I thought they would really be fun done a little different that how they looked.  I especially didn't like the eyes which seemed to just stare at you.  Here is the before picture:

These owls were ceramic and I paid only a dollar for each one.  I had a can of oops paint that was pink, so I painted the pink on the owls.  I didn't spray them pink.  When they were dry, I painted the owls with a gold acrylic paint that came from Michaels craft store. I really liked this particular gold paint, sometimes gold paint can be a little to dark , with maybe too much brown in it.  This gold was truly a gold color.   I wiped off the excess and stood back and decided to let them dry.  After that out came the poly-acrylic to finish them off and to seal the paint.  I really liked the end results and they were easy to do, just took some time.....

So what do you think?  See you next time......Dianne

  1. That's awesome that you found it at a flea market! And you definitely improved him with your upgrade, very cute. Love the pink.

  2. Very cute colour. I had something similar and mod podged them. What was with owls from yesteryear, why the freaky eyes?? Thanks so much for sharing at Etcetorize this week!

  3. The owls turned out very cute! The gold paint that you used looks nice, a real gold coverage. Both you and I were working with pink and gold this week on our projects.
