PostSubject: A China Girafe Gets a Makeover!   Sun Sep 29, 2013 5:17 pm

The other day we went out to my sister's old hometown and stopped by a dollar store, where my grandmother found some wonderful Halloween decoration pieces and I (of course) went to look for the plastic animals. xD I searched or some nice horses, but there were none, and looked at a few other animals. I found some nice birds, but didn't like the paint of them, and wasn't sure if I could repaint those ones. But i found this adorable little giraffe, here, take a look:

but i didn't care for his paint job or the poor moulding skill on him, so i figured with a face like that, he deserves to look better!

so i started, and his tail just seemed to bother me, it was too long and bendy, the paint would chip and pull off if it were moved, so i took out my scissors and chopped it off. I then proceeded to drill a hole in the base of the tail and stuck on the middle part of a cotton swab as a base. so after a couple coats of paint, i finished him this morning. i present to you, Girrafery. xD his name is like Jeffery, but not. xD

Girraferie turned in a wonderful girl! Very Happy
You did a great work. I only don't know if Martin, our giraffe lover, will agree with the cutting of the tail. ;)It has a lovely expression. flower
