On the first one, I painted the face, buttons, etc. On the second one, I left the wood natural, twisted the wire differently, and added the eyes and mouth with a sharpie. (The nose was painted on)
I think that I will sell a ton of these, especially with a tag stating they are from Colorado Aspens. I am offering the kits in my Etsy shop as well as the aspen discs. The kits will come with directions and all materials except paint.
Have a great and safe weekend, my friends, and remember why we are celebrating. Many have given their lives so we can continue to go to the beach, the campsite, the mall and the garden. Good bless our veterans and active duty servicemen.
