bird bath top in acrylics


hi everyone im playing again with the acrylic paints
its going to be a bird bath for my mum .......she had her's stolen and never got round to replacing it.
so as a mothers day gift im making her a new one.... its made out of terracotta tall tom flower pot and a base plate
i emulsioned both and then painted in the flowers. i have put the same design on front of the tall tom pot
first coat of yacth varnish on........... it takes 6 hours to dry........it should then  be alright to stand out side in sun. its got to have 3 coats im told .............hope i get it finished in time got 3 more pots on the go just been out and got plants to go in them ready
hope my mum likes it
will show you the finished bird bath once its all completed
thanks for popping by today its been beautiful weather here i hope your getting the same
hugs linda xxx
