Default more on the jig doll

You can tell I don't have much talent for detail painting. The blue is krylon spray acrylic. The black and red are sharpie marker. I ran out of model paints on Jay's boat.
Gave it a couple coats shellac then applied the color. Then a few more coats of shellac applied very lightly to heep the ink from bleeding more than it did. Got a little heavy and early with the first top coat.

hey Rob,

He looks great after painting, well...I don't know if he's laughing or try to scare someone, but it's a fine project. Maybe something for the grandchildren to let them paint one by themself in the hollydays?

G'day Oily,
He came up pretty good.
From memory...........which aint a real good place to start from............ we called them "Limber Jacks".
There was a great film clip many years ago of "Rolf Harris" singing "Whisky on a Sunday" and it focused on Limber Jacks. The song is also known as "Seth Davey".
