Christmas Eve Travelers Shelf Sitter - JS026S

  • Sale
  • Regular price $13.95

Santa and his helpers have far to travel this wonderful night, and, much to do!  Don't we all love elves!  Wearing green jackets (to blend into the bushes), red hats (in case they fall into the snowdrift) they have begged Santa for a short ride as he starts his journey.

This set includes the unpainted shelf sitter, including a base, color photos and instructions - patterns are etched on the surface for ease and to add dimension to the painting.  

This shelf sitter is done out of mdf and laser cut with intricate detail.  The patterns are lightly etched on the surface for ease of painting.  If you prefer to not use the etching, it can be painted over with Gesso or Texture paste and then the pattern can be applied - as you prefer.

This design originally appeared in our our book Painting for Christmas.  If you have this book already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the unpainted shelf sitter.

The shelf sitter is approximately 8.5" tall.  The included base is about 9" in length by about 2" wide.
