FolkArt Sheep Make-do


This is the sheep make-do I've been working on, one of two. I had started off trying to distress the wood spindle. I painted it black, then a coat of yellow ochre, a coat of barn red and another coat of black acrylic. I sandpapered the edges in the hopes of getting the other colors to come through, but it didn't work. . So I opted to leave it black and paint the colors on the outside to give the spindle a more decorative look and also co-ordinate with the colors on the sheep. I painted a penny rug blanket on the sheep and sewed a rusty bell to it's neck.
