Working on Orders
Well got some time to turn and thought I had better get started on my Christmas orders. I have a bunch. Here are 5 ornaments of 18 done. My sister and another lady wanted just some fancy icicles that would be the bottom of my 3 piece ornaments. Neither one wanted the 3 piece ornaments just the icicles. So I figured what a great time to practice icicles (finials). Both are extremely happy with them so all is good. Icicles are Osage Orange, spalted maple, walnut, one maple with purple heart and one maple with bocote. The ornaments are 2 spalted maple, 2 cherry and 1 cedar. I have 13 snowmen that the LOML just painted so will get pictures after they dry. All are finished with rattle can lacquer. A few of the ornaments I sprayed with glidder silver and some with glidder gold I got from Michaels. Came out great.
