          Hi Joe , the choice of Paint is Acrylic . That will be a Fun Project also , 13 of them . It took about 5 Ft. of 1/2" x 6" Board . They are all cut out , now I just need to sit back and take my time and Carve and make Chips .Being that they are all different keeps it from getting Boring and doing the same thing over and over . Thanks Joe , How's the Hand doing ? Merle

              Merle, the swelling has gone down, picked up a knife to practice on my ear project, still award to hold anything in the left hand, but it loosens up, will take the stitches out thru. Thanks for your interest

                Hi 807 , this is a Bigger Project than I thought it would be , but still a Fun one . They all have their own Personality and I think that is what's Appealing with them . Thanks for your Encouraging Words . Merle

                      They put a smile on my face Merle! I know the GGkids will love them. We have a new G Gandson. Who just moved his family into their frist house. I will have Y to come up for something for his room.

                          Got a good start on them. A little more work than you thought? Have fun doing them..... I used 1# command strips (amazon) they’re the right size and removable.
