I was highly inspired after seeing BananaAmbush's My Little Zombie http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252828.0

In New Zealand, the BNZ bank gives out these cool piggies to kids to help encourage saving. One of my workmates was doing a promotion for our charity to do with pigs and scored a whole lot of the cute money boxes. She very kindly gave me one, although I suspect she would be horrified with what I have done with him...

(please excuse the quality of the images- its my flattie's camera)

And the obligatory BEFORE image

I went a little overboard with the blood drips, but I am really happy with how it turned out. He was sanded, spraypainted, painted and then varnished with matte varnish. mwahaha

lmao, as a fellow BNZ pig owner I find that amusing.
Would you mind if I showed the girls at BNZ tomorrow? My mother works for them and they have been thoroughly entertained by what Ive been doing with my pig, Petunia, so Im sure they would adore yours (esp if I pass the pics over attatched to a life insurance policy  Wink )
If you have anymore pigs, let me know! Id love a whole set of pics to show them!


glitter it, no seriously, just add glue and glitter, no one will notice

Watch out he might take a tumble off that shelf! He doesn't have nine lives does he? Really a cute work of art. I am amused. Thanks for sharing.
