Garden Butterfly

This poor little butterfly spent the winter in the garden and ended up with quite a coat of rust.  You can barely see it in front of the carpet in my studio.  It used to be so pretty I couldn't bring myself to just throw it away.

Time to repaint and refresh for the summer.

Again I painted the entire piece white to seal it and give me a nice base to add color.

Here is the close up of the butterfly painted shades of blue, green and lavender with a touch of orange.  I used Martha Stewart Metallic Pearl paints.

The feathers I painted green, blue and lavender.  It is all refinished and hanging on the patio.

Happy Crafting!
