A little closer to done.
With the tree triple coated with it's base paints, it was time for the first of several glazes. This is when the tree suddenly comes to life and all of the detail we painstakingly sculpted in starts to jump. Over the next few days the tree and sign will get a series of darker glazes and then the smaller details like the lettering, ladybugs and fairy door will get their final colours as well. I can hardly wait to see it all done!
