Custom PaintingPosted: August 21, 2011
In case you didn’t know, the hubs and I have been making and selling Kubb sets all summer. It’s be kinda fun to tell you the truth, especially since we added a custom option to the mix!
I know I’ve already bragged a little about this one, but thought I throw it out there to show off anyways 🙂
A few weeks ago we got an order for a customized Nebraska Cornhusker set. I know, Matt was seriously sad that A. Someone was going to play with it and ruin it’s sheer perfection and B. That we had to put it in a box and ship it to Elkhorn, NE.
Here’s the point where I am sure you are asking yourself, “Why in the world are those casting pins yellow?”
Well, you see: I hand painted each of those six babies to look like ears of sweet corn. Yeah, I know…. it took I LONG time. Let’s just say, I spent the better part of a day off figuring it out and watching Netflix on the Wii!!!
I’d have to say that my favorite piece is the King: using a Nebraska football helmet as inspirations, we went to the white & red look
All in all, I’d have to say that I’m surprised how much I enjoy these painting adventures! Right now, I’m working on a Bears vx Packers for the Super Bowl trophy kinda thing for someone up in Minnesota. He’s a Bears fan. Why he lives in Viking territory is beyond me.
