Having really enjoyed re-painting an Easter Bunny figurine to give it a more antique, rustic appearance using Ozark Pagan Mother’s technique, I decided to use the same method to transform a rather twee and tacky faerie figurine.
I got the faerie from an Age Concern charity shop for 99p. I went for darker, stony tones this time. When I sponged on the top, lighter layer, the paint looked a little uneven so I stippled it with a coarse brush.
The result looks nicely dark and Gothic, quite a change from the original! I’m rather pleased with it.
