Okla_gal could you tell us what the name of the book is? I live in Canada and haven't found anything here. Maybe this could be a start.

My books on painting bulbs are mostly Christmas designs. But I did come across one painted white for an Easter Bunny. Then they added two felt ears hanging down to the sides and put a straw hat with flowers on it for an Easter bonnet. Cute.

This lady has a duck in her picture archives at http://communities.msn.com/MawmawsCraftBin/picturesofcrafts.msnw?Page=7

I'm not sure if that's the right page but it's in there somewhere. She also did some turkeys for Thanksgiving.

I have seen a few pictures of easter chicks, and I have painted quite a few bunnies (I might have some pictures). I have also seen a picture of a Uncle Sam, and I am trying to come up with my own idea for a Statue of Liberty. Good luck!

I would also like to know the name of that book too, if anyone comes up with it.

Here is a new book out with patterns/instructions for all kinds of painted lightbulbs. It is really cute...called "Watts Happening", by Sandy Holman.

Here is a link that might be useful: Artists Club
