Here is the before....

I know these are some people's cup of tea, but not mine. I got them at ross for a steal.


I painted them Gold with two coats of Lemiere by Jacuard.


Painted on the little sparrows from a Tattoo I saw years and years ago.




I'm heat setting the paint with a blow dryer on high cause I can't iron them.

<3
I LOVE them!
