ohmygoodness I am so tired from working on this project that I almost fell asleep right here at the keyboard uploading pictures. Feast your eyes loves, I am very proud.

This is the piece of thrift-store gold (teehee) I came by:


Obviously this started me singing 'Yo ho Yo ho a Pirate's Life for Me', which naturally led to my project being Pirates of the Caribbean themed. I have a photo montage here: www.myspace.com/myblackpearl if you would like to get a better look at the process and a few close-ups. There is also a detailed explanation of the process with BIG pictures there! Make sure youhave your speakers on when you go there. =)

Materials Used:
acrylic craft paints in at least 20 different shades, modge podge, printed out starry skies (to go behind the battered sails) from the good ol' inkjet, meshy fabric, thread, and of course my awesome ship orginal!

Time Spent: Close to 25 hours

Was is worth it? Hell yes.

The Finished Product:



yay for my first craft challenge entry! thanks for looking!!

I am totally in love with pirates, and this is possibly the best ship I've ever seen. You did an AMAZING job transforming this piece! (The water looks realistic!  Shocked) ..I need to go find one of those gold boat things...

Drink up me 'earties, yo ho!  Shocked What a great project! And what a great thrift-store find! From a pirate/privateer/swashbuckler enthusiast (see avatar), you did a fantastic job! Cap'n Jack would be proud.

P.S. - I love the music behind PoTC. When I heard it on the slideshow on myspace I got this crazy giddy smile on my face ...  Grin

This is a very late reply to your post... sorry!  But I am new to Craftster and have just seen this picture.  I have the exact same gold ship!  My husband got it from a friend and I didn't really like it gold, but I have been saving it, wanting to paint it; but always wondering if it would look good painted.  Does it ever!  Yours looks awesome!  Wow.  That is so cool.  I can't wait to show my husband the pic.

I can't wait till next summer for the 3rd one!  In fact my avatar is a pic of me and my husband after going to the 12:01 show on opening night!  It was so much fun.  A whole group of us went as pirates.  I am broke right now, but as soon as it comes to the dollar theater I will be watching it again!  Definitely!
P.S.  Oh, and thanks for permission to copy!  I think my husband is leaning toward that idea.
