And lo, upon the waves rode a rainbow of dolphin awesomeness!
Well okay, more like half a rainbow, give or take. (The awesome half, of course 😉 ).
I’ve been pretty much addicted to this color combination ever since I tried it out on the Pimped Rides Live model horse donation piece. As soon as I started playing around with the dolphins, I knew it was one I had to try out.
His pattern is rough approximation of a ocean-themed rainbow (or an oil slick, although those and oceans tend to mesh badly) and the glossy sealer really makes him pop against a fridge!
Turns out this flash of metallics was just the thing to catch a Etsy browser’s eye and he was the first of the dolphins to swim off for distant shores. I had a lot of fun painting him and I hope he keeps swimming for years to come. 🙂
