Toys o’ Jars

My first venture into ‘professional’ looking photos was spoiled this am by me waking up late. I also had a brand new haircut to contend with, so conditions weren’t exactly prime.

Before hair:


After hair: please note, my child was brushing his teeth and the result was the mirror mess. Don’t judge me



toys on jars!


Are they all done?

Of course not!

These 2 are:


This one was just scraped and redone, still needs spray acrylic to protect in from whatever, but I LURVE the silver:


This one needs some work. I have to prime the underneath of the walrus, as you can see the glue. And I think I’m going to add something to lighten the red a bit. I may have to actually reprime it and paint it white, then repaint it red. I wanted like red red, and this looks too dark to me:


Zebra still needs acrylic as well, and as it’s cold as shit here, I think the primer bubbled in the middle of the jar lid, so I’m gonna have to dremel that off and repaint that area. I hate bubbling.


I also got involved on working with Thomas again, so I had quite a bit of shit scattered in the floor last night.

random note
I love the fact that my hair can no longer find its way into paint!


I work in this dumb position to keep myself from hunching so bad, like a semi child’s pose in yoga. As you can see, my before hair was often in danger of paint, glue, getting caught in the sewing machine, etc.

    Cute animal lids! Can you hold the animal and unscrew the jar or will the animal come off?? Just wondering. 🙂
