The Bad Apple Bobber was a fun paint job.

The original mural in mind changed but it came out great as it evolved. There’s quite a bit of gold leaf utilized in it. Even the daggers blade is gold leaf and then painted over just a little.

I gold leafed it and pin stripped it and added a touch of airbrush.

 

So far as I know the bobber has won two trophies.
