I got my Dad to cut them for me and I've just been painting away...

You are one patient Craftster!! Smiley  How long does each one take you approximately?

They look very realistic...and the colors in the background are lovely as well.

I probably spent about an hour? painting each one, not including time spent priming and sanding them, and clear coating them afterwards.

I love wearing them out, I get tons of compliments! Grin

Did you use oil paint or acrylic? Or something else entirely?

They're primed with a watered down acrylic gesso, and then a tonal underpainting in waterey acrylics......and then from there I painted them in oils.

Thanks for looking!
