I picked this guy up on a whim at the hobby lobby a few weeks ago and decided to give him a little more color. Painted his body teal and blue, gave him so purple antlers and a little pink nose. He doesn't show it in this picture, but I have since given him several coats of varnish and put sparkles on his antlers.
I LOVE him to death and I really want to make a whole herd of rainbow colored reindeer to keep me company in my craft room <3



Front view, he has such a sweet little face! I'm so pleased with how well it turned out!

There's no reference in the photos, but he measures about 4-5" high Smiley

A teal deer? A TEAL DEER?  Grin If this was unintentional, it's hilarious. If it was, kudos to you.

Have no idea what I'm talking about? Er, well, that just means that you don't frequent the bottom of the barrel forums that I sometimes visit. .__. Teal dear is a way of saying the acronym "TL;DR," which in turn stands for "Too long; didn't read," aka, the goto phrase for those with internet ADD who don't want to read more than one paragraph at a time.

I apologize now for wasting your time. Nice work though, even without the meme reference.  Smiley

I love him!  May have to give this a go.
Hope you don't mind if I steal the idea!  It really is genius!

Haha! I totally know the meme! This particular Teal Deer was no reference to it, although I do have a TL:DR little fawn necklace floating around. I just happen to really like the color teal XD

I definitely will! I'm working on a purple one at the moment, and I started a bunch of other animals as well Smiley

I use just regular acrylic paints (the craft kind, not the expensive art kind). I like them because they're cheap and don't stain my hands. I think it would be a great project for your kids!

Haha thanks. I'm slowly working on taking better pictures of my projects and I found that felt the other day at Hobby Lobby. Gonna try to use it in a lightbox somehow.
