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...

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
