Painted Mdf for Shaun

Helloooooo all, I'm not around every week at the moment, I'm keeping busy making and painting, I hope you have been busy too. I've also been away visiting family.

It's a really short post this week and I thought I'd show you all a personal make.

Mdf painted shapes, initials and names have been very popular this year, I made this one for my grandson.....

I painted it in a 3D style and I'm pretty pleased with the result, so was Shaun.

He's a big fan of all things Minecraft and even had a Minecraft Bouncy Castle at his birthday party....

........ and lots of fun was had by all.

See, I told you it was a short post.

Take care and have a great week.

Toadstools for door or drawer pulls...

I love toadstools, especially the Fly-Agaric, they are often associated with Fairies and Fairy Tales and have a magical quality about them. I always paint them on my Fairy Doors so I decided to do a few door pulls to match....

Toadstool Door Pulls

I painted 2 different sizes, 30mm and 40mm.

Door Pulls in different sizes

They come with screws to fit onto a door or drawer.

They could even be used as an ornament on a shelf.

I have decided to pop a couple of these in my Folksy Shop and will paint them to order, they don't have to be the traditional Red & White, I can paint them in any colour combination. I had fun taking the photographs, I collected bark, moss and Ivy from the garden to use as props, I was really pleased with how they turned out so I used one for my Facebook Cover Photo. If you haven't already seen my facebook page you are always welcome to pop over to say hello.
