Now it's time to give him a personality! I made sure he has that little twinkle in his eye for the final accent. A little drybrushing for the cheeks gives him that cute ruddy appearance.
I added a nice accent patch to his hat. This hat will have raffia inserted later around the edges of the brim for a straw effect. I felt I needed a bit of color to bring it all together.I added some fun stripes for his plaid shirt and the button of course. Any colors could be used for the shirt. I just like the burgundy/red/orange combination for a fall feel.
My last post on this scarecrow will include the finishing gloss coat and the raffia accents. Hmmm....I will also need a name for this guy. Any suggestions please comment :-)
Thanks for taking a peeek!
