We deal with so many details every day. I thought it would be fun to take a look at some craft photos to demonstrate how small changes can make such a dramatic difference. Let’s go!
Acrylic Painted Rabbit
This cute rabbit has blended fur colors, but a rather blank expression.
Acrylic Painted Rabbit with 3D Details
The 3D paint creates facial depth, and provides a twinkle in eyes filled with personality.
Acrylic Painted Flamingo
Flamingos are so colorful and unusual. The color scheme captures the essence of the bird but lacks the textured feathers.
Acrylic Painted Flamingo Layered with 3D Texture
Now he appears to be staring back at you while he proudly shows off his brightly colored plumage.
Two-Tone Green Man
Mother Nature’s counterpart doesn’t look very happy, does he?
Two-Tone Green Man with Metallic Gold Highlights
After brightening the whites of his eyes, he had his “hair” highlighted and now he looks rather pleased with himself. lol
Black & White Photo vs. Colorized Photo
The black and white portrait is nice, but look how soft, warm and romantic the second photo is thanks to the addition of color and dreamy special effects.
Metallic Silver Octopus
Metallic silver is an odd choice for such a fluid sculpture of a living animal.
Full Color Octopus with 3D Details
A vibrant new color scheme brings this blue ringed octopus to life, and the three-dimensional suction cups add texture as well as a more realistic approach to this wriggling octopus.
Gnome House vs. Bamboo Tropical Hut
Originally this little house was part of a collection of gnomes. A bamboo pattern combined with a few brightly colored silk flowers transformed it into a tropical hut for an ocean-themed centerpiece.
3D Painted Celtic Cross
Celtic designs are famous for their knot work. The three-dimensional green paint contrasts nicely with the black background and textures the entire surface.
3D Painted Celtic Cross with Metallic Gold Accents
The introduction of three-dimensional gold accents brings a bit of sparkle and opulence to the design.
Acrylic Painted Seahorse with 3D Accents
Seahorses are known for their brilliant colors and textured bodies. The 3D paint adds a bit of texture along the contours of the body and upon the spiny back.
3D Painted Seahorse
By using only 3D paints, the entire seahorse springs to life in glorious color and texture.
No snowman is complete without a few knitted accessories.
Fashionable Snowman with Lights
The addition of lights not only adds sparkle, but also enables him to shine at night in any window to complement your exterior decorations.
Halloween Witch vs. Christmas Elf
How can a Halloween decoration become one of Santa’s helpers? The answer lies in accessories! Cover the hat and tuck in the hair, add a scarf and candy cane and voila you have a Christmas elf.
Instructions for most of these items can be found on the “How To Projects” page.
It is said: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Little details have a strong influence over our perceptions, but sometimes we become so accustomed to our surroundings that we barely notice. Look at your home from a new perspective. Check out those little details to see if something could use a touch of color, a bit of whimsy and a little tender loving care. You’ll be glad you did!
