Well, I don't consider myself a painter by any means, but, I think these came out pretty good. :)
They started out as those resin urns you sometimes see in the craft stores.
I didn't like the yellowish color that they were originally, so I thought I'd faux paint them to look like cement.
But, I wanted more detailing and age to them.
So, I thought I'd use a wash of black to highlight them.
I got a good bit of water.
And then, just a drop of black paint.
Using that tiny brush, I just went in and around all of the nooks and crannies.
Of course, when I explained what I was going to do, my nearest and dearest mini friends kept telling me they would look "charred" in the end. (they shall remain nameless) I don't think they look charred at all. :)
Now, they are ready to go off to GoldenUnicornMinis She is going to fill them with some mini greens for me, some spiky in the center, some trailing over the edges and and more mixed greens to fill in.
I can't wait to see how they will look then! :)
I just got some real life urns that look just like these, how funny is that? ;)
Until, next time! :)
