My two daughters keep asking if they can help, but the timing just hasn't been right until tonight.
They ended up brushing black onto the "scimiers" which mount atop the seats of two of our gondolas.
Getting started on the big scimier with angels and a shield.
Detailing the smaller scimier from the Phoenix.
The job is done. The girls did a great job, and most of the black paint actually made it onto the scimier. If you happen to have your kids assist you in your painting projects, be sure to use a table you don't mind getting paint on.
