Inspired by a tutorial on The Anticraft, I finally figured out what to do with a resin yard angel that my grandma gave me:



She's about 18" tall.  I wanted to paint bones on her wings too, but there are a lot of "feathers" so the surface was too rough.
I still have to decide what to put in her hands.  She's supposed to have a little gazing ball, but I might make a tiny earth, or maybe a small potted herb.

Here's the original craft:

How about a skull?
