I'm still trying to finish up a few special orders
get my own gifts painted
This is a wooden Nutcracker surface
that I had purchased several years
ago from a company called
that was going out of business.
They made the most amazing and unique
Lots of detail!
Love his plaid coat!
It was so much fun painting him
slowly watching him come to life
The surface I used is called
The Nutty Toymaker
Look at the
tiny nutcrackers that work!
I found a pattern to paint him
December 2003 issue
The pattern designer was
The little train that goes around the base
is full of detail and so much fun to paint
I also painted pine branches,berries and snowflakes
around the base.
Are you ready to see a close up of his face?
Don't you just love him????
He is really a OOAK piece
these nutcracker surfaces are no longer available
And here he is!
The Nutty Nutcracker
I really love him......so I decided he is going to be a gift for me!!!!
Happy Painting !
