Making 'Smiley Faces'



I never liked throwing away my used paint brushes, which I've been doing for twenty years. Finally, I came up with an idea that puts a smile on my face.

This is just a few minutes of work using left-over plaster from my bigger project. Tomorrow, I'll hit these faces with some sandpaper and add plaster to the backside.
