Ukulele - nouveau décor
Once upon a time a ukulele in the woods... After having removed the strings and the tunes, Mr Mirabilys sanded it and painted it in a sweet almond green shade, unfortunately this color appears white on the pictures.
When all was well dried, I took my pencil to draw something springy, inspired for the rabbit by a fabric from Timeless Treasures I've seen somewhere on the web.
I settled under the willow tree with my colors and my brushes and started to put a bit of colors on the white rabbit, it looks better now.
A little blue bird and some carrots after... Some details.
Il est presque fini, il va falloir vernir tout ça avant de remettre les cordes et les mécaniques. Ce ukulélé soprano est un cadeau d'anniversaire pour mon beau-frère, il va bientôt rejoindre son nouveau propriétaire dans la région parisienne.
It's almost finished, we have now to add a few coats of varnish, put back the strings and the tunes. This soprano ukulele is a birthday present for my brother-in-law and will soon join his new owner in Paris' suburb.
Edit du 21 avril: J'ai omis de préciser un détail important: je l'ai peint en version inversée... son destinataire étant gaucher. Les cordes seront aussi placées à l'envers. Il aura ainsi un instrument parfaitement adapté. ;-)
I've have forgotten an important detail: I've painted it with the usual "side" on the opposite, just because his future owner is left-handed. We'll also put back the strings in the reverse way. So he will have a perfect instrument adapted especially for him. ;-)
