My husband keeps telling me he can't paint, despite much evidence to the contrary.  For example:

He bought a set of blank matryoshka dolls on-line, then spent a week painting them.  It got a bit hairy towards the end when he applied the varnish -- the stormtrooper turned pink!  But he managed to sort it all out in the end.

They were a Christmas gift for his youngest brother, who happily seems to love them as much as we do. Smiley

More pictures!

There's more information, and close-up images, on his blog.

Thanks for looking!

Can't paint?! Your husband is too modest for his own good. Smiley
What a wonderful gift. I just love the little Yoda.

Those are freaking awesome. I'd show them to my husband, but I'm afraid he'd want them, and I really can't paint.
Kudos to your husband, these really rock!

Wow those are freakin cool. I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan and would just love something like this in my collection. I don't usually like deformed Star Wars things like Bobble heads or Plushies but that is so unique and well done I find myself coveting them in the worst way. Awesome!!!

Those are great! A "non-painter" with real talent. Cheesy

Obi-Wan actually looks like Obi-Wan! Some of the Lucas Arts stuff released doesn't look as comparable.

Nice work to your hubby, and good on you posting it on Craftster. Love it.

Keep smiling - It makes people wonder what you're up to.

Looking for Australian personal swaps! [For now. I'll branch overseas when I can afford it!]

A-freaking-mazing!  I *wisted* and *rocked* these.  My son is the huge Star Wars fan in my house ... but I would so display these with pride in the middle of the liveing room for all o see.

FABULOUS!  I bow to your husbands skills.
