Hey guys! Smiley I was working on some simple Halloween-type project ideas that were cheap to do, so I went to the thrift shop and got some 99 cent old porcelain cat figures and re-painted them with Acrylic Paints, Micron Pens and some Matte varnish top coat. So fun! ^_^ I wasn't sure which category to put these in, so hopefully the More Art, Less Craft is somewhat appropriate.

Awesome idea and purrfect execution!  I really dig the Da de Muertos look you gave them.  And there is NEVER a shortage of cat figurines at thrift stores!
