Dirty Bird

I've been playing in the dirt again! Yep...Dixie Dirt from
And, of course, I've had a little fun with Dixie Belle Paint too.

This 3 dimensional wooden wall art was just too dark. You couldn't appreciate the detail.

A cheerful scene such as this should be bright and happy! So I painted it with the color Daisy...

I waxed the piece with clear wax and then added the Dixie Dirt to bring out the detail.
I added the dirt with a small chip brush...
then buffed it to remove the excess dirt...

Now this sweet little bird can sing a bright and happy song.

Have you played in the dirt lately?
It's fun!
