Sometimes (*ahum* many times) my sister is a way better crafter than I am. A couple of weeks ago we bought some pretty naked Christmas angels (or something like angels). My mum fell in love with the cute faces, and the sis decided that she would paint them. So we bought some acrylic paint in Germany (kinde cheap, I dare say) and when we were back home, sis got to work. And she did an amazing job, let me tell ya! She is not so patient as I am when it comes to very detailed work, but she managed to pull it off anyway.

She is more hesitant to paint our new nativity scene :p.

Good, unto some pictures!


This is what the angels looked like when we bought them. Pretty plain, no?


Sis working hard!


In progress, with all the mess around her :p


All together, tied to our stove! We were a bit afraid that it would be too warm for them there, but they are doing fine. Great paint!


I tried a close-up, to show the glitter a bit better. It looks strange when you paint it on, but it dries beautifully.

And now the full body shots!

So cute!
The red one looks almost like velvet.
Wish I could find those cut outs.

Wish I could find those cut outs.

And wish I could help... We bought these at a craft fair, and we don't know who sold these, and there was no brand on the plastic wrap. I really wish I could help.

Oh, my sister would like to add that it was pleasant to paint Wink.
