Time for a Pina Colada
Our little hound just needed a drink, that’s all.
A few steps…the coconut was carved and then just roughed up a bit with a typhoon bit on a foredom tool to give the coconut some “fuzz.” It was painted with brown acrylic and then dry brushed with a lighter brown for highlights.
The umbrella was made of a piece of brass that was cut in a circle and then shaped into a point by cutting one radius line and overlapping the brass followed by soldering. The stem of the umbrella is just the rod of a pop-rivet that was epoxied in place. A straw was bent from a short length of metal rod about the size of a finishing nail.
Everything was painted with acrylics and topped with a matte coat of urethane spray.
The drink in the coconut was made from epoxy mixed with some flour ( to give it some “foam” ) and a bit of pink acrylic paint.
I think he’ll enjoy this drink.
