    4 Elephants
    by MsLibra
    Here are the elephants I made based off of Arleens youtube videos. The very first 2 I burned lines to look like wrinkles the last 2 I used crystals for eyes not sure if I'm going to paint them yet. I made 5, one was given to my grandmother and my grandsons have the first 2 (the grey).
