This merry group of carolers was suggested by my husband Jerry and fondly recalls memories of group sing-a-longs of the many special Christmas songs during the holiday season. And just to complete the festivity of this special time, there is a small “Partridge in a pear tree” at the bottom. So why not put on some delightful Christmas music and loose yourself in the fun of creating a special holiday memento? Happy painting!
This bundle includes the turned 16" beaded plate and the new enhanced pattern packet. The design originally appeared in the Artist Journal back in 1998 but now we have done new photography with enhanced color close-ups that have never appeared prior. This is a large 16" plate with a beaded outer edge. The plate is turned from basswood by Tim Montzka. If you've ever seen Montzka's plates you know that they are the very best available. This bundle includes the pattern packet and the unfinished 16" custom wood plate for the design shown.
