Painting of blow molds

I bought two blow molds of off e-bay. As a matter of fact, I'm painting them to give to a friend of mine.

Nothing better than refurbishing a classic Christmas piece, maybe you could post a picture of your work.

I am a Blowmold lover myself... And that is one of the biggest problems that I have found with them, is repairing them. When they get older and have been out in the weather (cold, snow, rain, UV, etc...) it takes a toll on them and the paint on them starts to flake or wear off. Plus, with the storage of them (they're bulky), they can be dinged, scratched, etc...

I'm always looking for a way to get them touched up, either by myself or somewheres else....

Unfortunately,

The file exceeds the limit of uploads. Can I please have your e-mail so that I can send it privately?

Thanks for your help.
