Craft: Archangel Statue

One more Angel before I leave you for the year. This one was actually the inspiration for the whole project... I bring you, Archangel! (Somewhat gender-bent)


Like the others, this project started out with a statue I bought at a craft store.


I sanded it down and primed it with my plastic-friendly spray primer:


The next step was painting all the silver areas. I got the depth of color I wanted by starting with a coat of dark blue, purposely dark in the cracks and rubbed partially off of the raised designs:


The silver got the reverse: only lightly in the depths and bright on the high parts. Then the rest of it needed paint.


A good deal of paint later, and I'm very happy with the finished product.
