Upcycled Vintage Tin RosaAnne Angel
I made a few more RosaAnne angels last week. People have been asking for them lately. They make great Christmas gifts.
As you can see these two are total opposites.
For the body of this angel I cut up an old piece of tin. The wings are a piece of broken plastic detail from something…..?
I make quite a mess when putting the angels together. Sometimes just finding the right pieces takes forever. One angel can take several hours to finish. That’s not all work time of course. A lot of time is spent finding things that work together as the body, head, and wings of the angel.
I clean and wax the boards and hardware.
An easy way to apply wax to detailed pieces is with a brush. Some people apply wax to furniture with a brush but I prefer waxing furniture with a rag.
And that’s the latest angels. What do you guys think of these two? The small pink one is quirky but I like it.
I’ll see you guys Sunday when I join a few other bloggers in a Mason Jar Gift Idea blog hop. Have a great weekend!
