I finally got to paint red! I painted on a dark red, then dry brushed a bright red over it. I think the red looks amazing!! It's so nice to see them get closer to being done!
The red (and some subsequent touch-ups) took most of our 2 hours, so I actually brought them home and worked on them! I painted Santa's gloves, belt, and boots black. For Mrs. Claus' shoes, I painted on a dark green then dry brushed a bright green. Dry brushing is so great! It really makes the details stand out.
I still have more touch-ups to do and I have to learn how to do eyes from Barbara! We are busy the next 6+ weeks, so I don't think I'll be able to go back until July, which is super disappointing! At least I know that with direction, I can work on pieces at home!
