I Am Not A Figurine Painter, But…

I just had to do this! In my previous post, I showed photos of the Stable and Manger scene that I purchased at a Christmas bazaar. I loved it, but felt it needed my artistic touch. 

I love the difference now in the vibrant change of color and improvements to the stable. I redid everything from saw dust floor to the moss covered roof.
 It was a total makeover and it looks much more real now. 

The biggest transformation was in Painting the figurines delicate faces and was the hardest but most rewarding part. For this I used acrylic paint which worked wonderfully!

Working little by little, day by day, it’s finally completed!
All totaled I have 46 1/2 hours on this project, and it was worth every wonderful minute!

Away in the Manger…

I was at a Christmas bazaar in December when I happened upon this
second hand Stable and Manger Scene and just fell in love with it, so I purchased it!

When I got it home and set it in the corner where I wanted it to be,
the Stable and figurines looked so pale, beat up and washed out.
Being the fixer upper that I am, I decided to give it some life.
I now have 4 Stable and Manger Scenes, but this one is special
and I really want it to shine and stand out.
I have been working on it since January.
I will have the finished product in my next blog. I am really excited about it!
Somehow, a manger scene in a home brings life, warmth and hope!

As always, I wish you a very Blessed day, Yovette
