DAY #329 – WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE

#329-what's good for the goose (1)

I thought for sure I’d finish this goose in one day, but it wasn’t to be.

I started bright and early 8am.

I created a feather template from my recycle bin. I assure you, when I am through, they will look a lot more like a feather motif!

By 3pm I had mostly only completed the under-painting.  I’m not sure if this is due to my driftwood goose’s size, which is around 2 ft high or the fact that the dried out wood sucked up so much paint I had to go over every area 2-3 times.

Whatever the reason, I’m only half way there on this creature.

I still haven’t figured out what I want to do for designs on the head.

I also plan on adding some of these corks too.

Either way, I love having these brightly colored 3-D objects around the house!

Tomorrow is my favorite day of the week, pottery day.  Maybe I will try to be disciplined enough to leave the pottery studio when I’m supposed to.  I generally stay an extra two hours.  I will try to leave early and finish this goose. I better. I still have five other driftwood sculptures waiting to be transformed!

  1. Hey Mary: Just a thought…I know when I paint crafty wood, I always prime it with some modpodge as a base so the wood doesnt soak up all the paint….don’t know if that’ll help you…other than that, keep the “goose flying”….love watching the process as well as the “finish”…peace;-)
