For my mother, I wanted to do something special. In fact, the only reason it became a christmas gift is because I didn't have time to finish it before traveling there to visit in the summer.
The shining parts are actually painted with silver-paint.
The text is in swedish, saying; "Remember to Laugh (It could have been worse)".
Next up is something I made for Mr. Kilt. I found this funny looking porcelain-pipe hidden away on a dusty shelf, and after discussing wildly for about half an hour with the class we came to the conclusion that it must be a brandy/whiskey/akvevit-pipe. In short; you pour an alcoholic beverage into the tiny bowl and sip it through the long thingy, haha.
Oku is one of Mr.Kilt's many names and definitely the easiest to write. The skull? It's kind of my thing when it comes to painting, not to mention that alcohol is poison. (Sweet, sweet poison...)
Don't run with scissors.
