So that's what it looks like painted. I've mentioned it before over at my blog but did not recognize it at all. Superb job Howard.

That house is beautiful. I love what you have done with it. And the way you painted the Santa is amazing.

update...4/17/2021...

Here's a closeup picture of both the Tim Holtz Salvage Snowman and Santa I painted...in addition to adding small round bases, painting with ordinary craft paint and giving them a good coat of high gloss clear polyacrylic, I added glass glitter to the bases...and that sort of yellowish color you see on some areas of the figurines is the polyacrylic starting to age...

Thanks Howard! I just purchased them from the link you provided. Can't wait to get them. I will post the "finished" painted products on the figures section when done! :)
