I know I have seen this done, and I am looking for something new to try? Has anyone done these or now where I can find pictures?

Thanks!

Nonacook from over in the Garden Junk forum has some listed on her website. I'm sure there are more out there, but here's hers.

There are a couple of books out with great ideas for pavers. I only bought the first one that came out--got it at Michaels, think they still have them. I painted Uncle Sam's Leprechan's, Bunnies, ladybug, and a snail. Easy to paint, but suggest you use old brushes, pretty rough surface!

If you do a search here at Home Site you should find some. There were a lot posted last year!!

Thanks for sending folks to my site. Since my DD fixed it, I have done others. A bumblebee,
a leprechaun, scarecrow, and Santa faces. But she hasn't had time to add them. And I am computer
illiterate. Mine are mostly for the outside, so I don't have added parts, except for hats.
I use Walmart spray paint for my sealer-base coat, then add the other acrylic colors I need. Use a lot of
black and white gesso, too.
