Christmas bobbles for the YCN

Hi all, here are images of the bobbles that I painted on for the YCN Christmas Tree. I was emailed asking if I would be interested in sending them a decoration in exchange for a gift under the tree, the decorations were done just for fun but also could be seen as a bit of promotion at the same time.

First off, I spent a day to decipher what form was the decorations going to be, are they going to be made out of paper, maybe papier mache, what about using something like wood and finally what about using old decorations to make new ones.

After looking around I came across some old bobbles which I decided to go down this path of making the bobbles for the tree, I also thought it would be nice to make more than one to make it a series rather than just sending one to the YCN.

I have to say paining on them is one thing but drawing was a bit awkward in some places as the bobbles weren't perfect spheres but more like that of a disco ball in that both are made up made up of little hexagons. they have come out quite well though and hopefully the YCN are happy with them.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful christmas and a happy new year.
