Thanks for the comments, it does my ego good, painting is something I am trying to learn and insecure about, I have taken a few classes, like the one stroke painting ( hated it because everyones projects looked the exactly same ) and a few tole classes. I liked the tole more, except I am not into the cutsie wood stuff, even though my mans a cabinetmaker hehe.
 I did seal them with a matte sealer cause the gloss was to shiny. I guess in life your either a matte or a glossy varnish kinda person.
 I have also come to realize I like the tube acrylics more than the bottled craft stuff, and that mixing my own colors is more fun the buying them premixed and cheaper too!!! The tube paint is more expensive but covers so much better, so less coats equals more time and time is money right.
 I primed all of my faces with white spray primer ( I had some fancy stuff left from when I painted warhammer stuff for my daughter ) then I just painted the faces like I was putting makeup on them. The black and silver one was sprayed with black paint ( enamel ) then dry brushed with silver tube acrylic. easy peasy. Then I spayed them with matte sealer. I prefer the krylon stuff, the 88 cent walmart brand yellows after about 6 months.

LOL. I have the exact same sunfaces from the dollar store hanging on my wall...Just not painted all colorful like. I bought my suns like 4 years ago, Do they have them now where you live? I wish my dollar store would carry them again. You say you painted the silver one, Thats funny because the ones I bought from the dollar store were already silver. I just sort of assumed that was an orginal one until I read your update. How friggin weird is that?

They look super pro. I agree that you should so sell them. (Or at least give them away as cheap presents!)

They are very nice!, the last one looks as if you carved it from a stone and that one to me looks very Mexican, like the Aztec Calendar style.

Here where I live, sometimes there is a sunday market and one day there was a stand of Buddhist stuff, really nice things btw. and they also had those suns and I got 3 of them with the same intentions as you: to paint them very colorful, but they are still waiting for it...I will get soon into them and I'll come to post them, they look like the first sun of your photo.

Good job!
