I thought you were crazy when you said you bought all those pink critters!! Well, the 1st 2 are so cute & who would think to turn 1 into a giraffe!! Great job painting! The GI sure looks official to me, he'll do a great job of protecting your home! Can't wait to see what is next once those guys get "cut loose". I can just hear the neighbors,"Mabel, it's getting worse, do you think we should call the cops, I mean, who hangs flamingos until they turn white!" Jan

Mosaicing bowling pins ? Just glue & beads !
"Goop" works the best for me . It holds instantly & dries clear. I have alot more "mingos" to show !!!

Those are wonderful... do your neighbors have tours in your yard yet?? It may be coming what fun!! Even more fun is when they start bringing you their trash to go throuh before they toss it. Love your art and I am sure the neighbors do too....

Those are just awesome. The paint job on the giraffe is sooooo good. The GI is really special. Can't wait to see the rest of them be released from their unusual perch and take on a new look.

Love that sweet bejeweled flamingo peeking out in the first 'little shop of horrors' pic! They are all cool, but I really love that one!

RE: My Pink Flamingos aren't pink anymore

You are too funny Kathy! LOVE both of them...the giraffe is amazing! And the military one named "Mingo" is great! Can't wait to see what else you do....you're such a talented painter!

Haha! I absolutely Love the GI Mingo! My hubby is Air Force, EOD(Explosive Ordinance Disposal) I may just have to try and find a flamingo(might be difficult here in SD) and copy your idea, if you don't mind. *g*

Mingo! That is fabulous! I love the attention to detail...especially the dogtags! They are so much fun. Does your giraffe have a name too?

RE: My Pink Flamingos aren't pink anymore

Thanks for the compliments !! My neighbor loves it - he thinks I made him a shooting gallery with all my hanging mingos ! LOL

The top coat of paint is just plain old Ceramcoat . I made one today -- it didn;t turn out the way I pictured it in my head . It was to be a "Recycla-mingo" - I'll have to re-think that one. I have a Zebra that just needs finishing ... a Red , White & Blue One , and a Green Bay Packers one. I wish I had enough of an imagination to name them .... LOL...

Anyway -- thanks again for making my head swell ( hehe )
