Pretty. What kind of paint did you use? Will she be outside? I have one laying down and want to paint her. when she dries out from the snow. Thanks
ah, a gardening angel! She is beautiful!
We painted the angels with a primer and then oil based paint with a hardener added. My DH has used the hardener for painting a couple of cars he painted. They will go out into the gardens in the spring.
What are the angels made of?
Wonderful paint job,
they look brand new!
Very nicely done and sure to be lovely in your garden
Post pics when you put them back in the garden!
I will post pictures when I put them into the garden but it probably won't be soon as we still have about a foot of snow here and it is just starting to get a little warmer.
I am not sure what the angels are made of. It is some kind of rosin. They were all a pale grey or off white garden statues made to look like cement. We bought them in Wall-marts. They lasted in the garden for a few years without doing anything to them. Then they started to deteriorate a bit and of course were stained from dirt and algae. We decided it was time to give them a remake. At first we just painted them white but I decided that I would like them in color so we decided to give it a try. I can't wait until I can get them out into the garden.
