X mas & decoration

I had been going out of my mind. The idea came up and there we go: some flower, some salt, some water. Just past and... here we are: a home-made christmasdecoration.
I left it a week on the heating to slow-dry and then in the oven.
Once the salt-bread was very hard, i started with painting. I used my childrens paint. Fresh colors, no problem. Dry again for half an hour on the heating before finishing. I used a hobby-varnish, also used for fimo and polymer-clay. At the end i finished it with a dark brown patina (Talens decorfin Patina antique-brown) to give it an old look and to darken the fresh colors.
