So, one of my crafty idols is Martha Stewart (she even has art in her name!)  i don't care what some folks have to say about her, so if you are haters, go away.  She did a lot for me in lonely times (ie. The 90's).  One of the things I still follow that she said was, "It's not a collection until you have three of them" (my words not her's...i don't remember exactly how she said it...).  So, when my father recently bought me Ghost Rhino Head, and then I bought Ecco the Red Rhino at a thrift (I'll show you soon Grin) I was angsty because I only had two....and THEN!  I remembered I bought a bag of plastic animals a VV at some point last year, and I was actually able to find it!  It was rather nicked up, so I decided to pull out my Martha Stewart special effects intense glitter paint.  it took a few coats to get it as glitter as I wanted, but her paint is so awesome to paint plastics with.  But, it seemed to need a bit more...so I took a pair of green glitter/glow butterfly wings that I cast in resin from one of her molds recently and used some epoxy putty to apply them to the back.  Now...butterfly aficionados will notice the wings are on .."backwards'  but I thought, if rhino's had wings, they would need more lift at  the back end, so the larger wings are at the back....it's my world, you just get to visit sometimes Grin

So...I'm happy to introduce...MARTHA the Disco Rhino!!!!


And here is her posse Grin


Thanks for looking Grin

The glitter is hurting my eyes!   Cheesy  I think she's adorable with her wings, perched on the back of the red rhino.

Thanks dinkimell!

She is not so blinding in real life Ludi Grin  But if I had to throw her at an intruder in the house or something like that, I'm sure she would take an eye out Grin

I just had to use as much Martha stuff as I could in one bit BBB Grin

Thanks I Sew Cute.  I seem to have a secret addiction to glitter.  I buy it when it's on sale, but I hate the mess of it all.  So resin is a perfect fix for that Grin
