Let’s hear it for the BUOYS!

Oh, I do love a good pun;) I was commissioned (well, la-dee-da don’t  I sound all artsy-fartsy!) to paint some lobster buoys this summer by a friend. She wanted me to paint a Santa on one and on the other some wording.

I used my die cutter and SCAL software to cut the letters out of gold vinyl after painting the buoy red. For Santa I drew an oval for the face and painted it peach and painted the rest of the buoy red (two coats) then I painted the black belt and white beard. Details on the face were added after the beard and hat fluff had dried. I used acrylic paint for this project and real lobster buoys. The buoys are made out of foam and really easy to paint on-no prep required!

So, if you are looking for an inexpensive Christmas gift of a craft fair item to make and sell why not paint a buoy? Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
