It's that time of year again, time to find or create gifts for what is probably a fairly long list of people!
If the budget is tight, but you'd like to give someone a little something that is fun, try the below.
(This one is going to my Dad, who has a collection of elephants...
sorry to ruin the surprise if you are reading.)
First, raid the kids toy box, or if that would be too unkind, head off to Michael's with a 40% off coupon and select from a very wide range of toy animals in stock. After the coupon, this one cost me around $3.00.
While you are there make sure to restock your supply of Rub'n Buff, which I forgot to do.
Luckily there was more than enough left over in the tube from my lamp refinishing project.
You'll only use a small bit, so this will run you maybe .50 cents.
Use a brush and cover the entire figure with Rub 'n Buff, this took me twenty minutes to be exact.
I know. I was looking at the clock and racing as it was quickly approaching time for me to go pick up the kids from school. Under normal circumstances I would spread out the job to half an hour.
And then you are the proud creator of a "faux brass" animal. Pretty fun I'd say, with the look of brass being so chic these days. A 'tongue in cheek" gift that certainly someone in you life would appreciate.
