I finally finished my kitty cat coasters, and by the skin of my teeth, at that. I ran out of sealer spray just as I finished the backside of the last one! WHEW!
Here's how they came out:
As you can see, I went ahead and did mixed sets. Even though my poll is not expired, it was running 50-50 between all one color and mixed sets. I am on the hunt for more of this thin pine, and when I find some, I'll add some single-color sets to the offerings.
If anyone of my readers KNOWS of a source for this very thin knotty pine (originally used as packing material), within a20-mile radius of my location in the far eastern side of Contra Costa County, California, please let me know!
I'm fairly pleased, but there were a few minor issues with the paint and the wood grain. It happens. Not a lot can be done about it, but, after all...minor imperfections are all part of 100% hand-made items. It proves no robots or other fancy machinery went into the manufacture!
Next, I have to spray the new mousie ornaments I've finished...but that will involve going and buying more sealer first. Ahh... interruptions..gotta love 'em! Good excuse to stop by Peet's for a mocha??? (hee hee hee.) Actually, had to go out anyway--stop by P.O. and ship out an order; go to bank; might as well pick up the spray while I'm out and about. And in reality, I guess I don't really get to go to Peet's, as it's 3 miles in the opposite direction from my main errands. Oh, well, was fun thinking about it. LOL
That's that for today. Back to work and off to errands!
