CHIP AND DIP

I found this sweet little lady at our local thrift shop yesterday.

Isn’t she cute? I shall call her Henrietta.

But alas she had a little CHIP on her head.

Sooo, being the lazy crafter I am, instead of going downstairs to look for some red craft paint, I grabbed some of this because it was just sitting there on the counter…

I sprayed a little into the lid and used the paint brush mother nature gave me to DIP in the paint and touch up poor Henny’s head.

(Don’t worry it will come off in the hot tub.)
All better

Now my Henrietta is as good as new.

She shall have a special place on my table for a while.

Ohhh, bad Henny… look what you did to my table.
Oh well, another project for another day.

I also got this. I’ve been wanting one for a long time.
Same problem, same solution…














All better

What a great find Henrietta is! She's a beauty, and I never let a little chip or crack scare me away. Paint is our friend!
Happy Weekend,
Carol
