Hailey was actually off today but at 8:00 am when I unlocked the shop doors she was there waiting. today was the day she would put the finishing touches to her first sign. It used all the tricks and techniques we have used for the Fox and Hounds project. She used the die grinder, sander, she sculpted, primed and painted. The there was a little twisting of wire for the knarly tree and layers of colored glaze to tone it all down, tie it together and make it look old.
Christmas morning Hailey will proudly give it away to her beloved grandparents. The sign is for the family cottage by the ocean. She has a right to be proud too for it is a nice looking sign.
