As part of Monroe Main Street's Farmin' on the Square project for
2013-2014, we painted a cow! Her name is MOO-rilyn Monroe -
The Green County Tour Guide. The biggest challenge was
getting her up the stairs to the studio! After that, all it took was a
bunch of acrylic paint, 82 hours and one all-nighter.
We always start out with an underpaint paint
Here Nikki adds a base coat of browns as the
first layer of the lovely Brown Swiss color.
Nikki starts the finish coat on the fur while
Suzanne starts detailing the postcards, and
buttons on MOO-rilyn's jacket.
Just a few of MOO-rilyn's postcards
Close to done!
