Update on Phineas

Phineas got a little more paint yesterday and he wanted you to see some of the changes. His red cap received some cream-colored stripes and he also got his shirt painted. He received some gold metallic trim on the edge of the green hat border, and the collar of his shirt as well as a dotted pattern to give the hat and collar a bit more visual interest. There was additional shading added on the face to give his features greater contrast, and he now has teeth instead of a white sliver. He was really happy about that!!

The thing Phineas was the most pleased with was the addition of tiny jingle bells to the tips of his hat trim. Every elf needs a little jingle!!

More work to be done on his ornie, but I need to paint on the Christmas Count today so the ornament design will have to wait until the end of the week.

Hope you like the changes...after seeing Phineas's hat I'm thinking I need an elf hat too!

Have a great day!
Laurie
