    My Father Time figurine is finally done.

    I had this figurine for quite awhile and never got around to painting him. Since this is the time that I enjoy just doodling I decided to paint him. He is just made of plaster but I found a really good clear shiny spray that actually makes him look like glass or porcelain. I'll leave him out until the end of January and exchange him for my Valentine decorations and remind myself not to buy any more projects, i have more than enough to do without adding.father time unpainted (600x800).jpgfather time finished (800x600).jpg

    Great job!!!

    Would you mind sharing the name of the clear spray that you used. I'm wondering if it could be used to touch up the gloss on some old worn/much loved pieces of china that I have.

    Very nice, Ruth!
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Thanks, I enjoy painting. Aunt Bea the name of the glaze is Krylon Clear Glaze. I got it in Walmart. I'm not sure if you can use it on items that you will be using for food. The label didn't say.011 (800x600).jpg

    Is it a ceramic piece? My mom did a lot of ceramics in her later years. My dad fixed up a room in our house as her ceramic rom. She became quite good at it.

    Thanks, I will look for it on my next trip to Walmart.

    The items I have will not be used but I probably should put a little sticker on the back just in case.

    Thanks again,

    B

    Ruth, good work for sure, he looks exactly as Father Time should look.

    Is that spray mentioned suitable for outdoor ceramics?

    Very nice Ruth! The missus likes to paint designs on small flat smooth rocks we get out of creek beds. She uses a similar clear coat spray on them when finished painting. Works really well for a final touch.
