    I Love these! I particularly like how you have kept the wood-ness of them- the grain and color. I know I would have covered them with gesso first and lost so much, right at the start. And I can see why it was hard to start in on them- a blank prepared surface can be very intimidating.

    Are they the ones your uncle turned for you?

  12. Beautiful – faces are so much fun, but I am sure using paint on a rounded surface adds its own touch of pressure.

    it’s amazing how a few (albeit skillfully placed) lines van create such personality on inanimate objects. love the slightly uncertain expressions on the brown-haired ones!

    I was recently trying to paint on wooden heads….HOW on earth do you keep the paint from bleeding in the wood grains? My mom and I had a horrible result, and we resorted to using colored pencils!!! Any advice or tips would be a big help!Thanks!
