One more plaster of Paris birdie. I like the chippy effect. There's too much light in the photo, but you get the idea! The pieces are varnished with gloss medium, which brings out the colors, but is hard to photograph. Then, an old battered tin, paint, paper, glaze medium and, Hey presto! A little bird shrine.
I've been listing more items in my Etsy shop. eBay is costing me more in out-of-pocket listing fees, because watchers/trackers just aren't bidding, so I've added a new section to my Etsy, called Monthly Specials, where eBayitems that haven't sold, instead of being re-listed, will migrate at almost the same prices as I have on eBay. This is because I do have some faithful and valued customers over at eBay, and I want to continue giving them a wide choice.
