The Elephant Parade is here and when we were out shopping last weekend, after checking out the numerous awesome designs (on the elephants) … Fitzand was attracted by a mini elephant sculpture painting activity in a corner. Luckily he preferred to paint one at home … otherwise I might have to wait there for hours before he can finish one. That is if he has the patience to sit there that long. Anyway … we picked up a blank elephant sculpture and headed home. I saved ten bucks because we didn’t have to go for the set that comes with a few little tubs of acrylic paint since I still have some at home.
Fitzand all warmed up to start painting!
Happy and proud of his little elephant!
I was a little worried that he’ll drop it!
I was his assistant during the whole process. He will make me wash the brush, pick the colors he wants … help him squeeze the paint on the palette (which he will then happily mix) and wipe away the mess. Pretty amazing I could still manage to snap some photos eh?
He was very detail in the painting. No spot were left (I think) unpainted.
Thank God the elephant is pretty small … otherwise I might have to buy a few buckets of paint for him.
I did thought of getting one for myself but I am sure he’ll kidnap mine when he sees it.
I had to be very alert during the whole process as I was really worried he’ll accidentally drop the elephant. I don’t mind getting him a replacement but I am sure he’ll be crying the whole night!
See the ears (in the photo below)? After adding that patch of white … he told me ‘Look daddy! It is like the sea and the sun coming up!’. Hmm … sunrise!!! He has very wild imagination!
He still wants to add some designs to it before I finally give it a layer of lacquer. Ermm … this means my work is not over yet too. Lol.
Don’t ask me why he added a cross on the elephant’s bum!
I asked him what he wanna name the elephant and he told me ‘I call him ELLO!’
