 those fingers are my favourite 

the resist spray keeps the black soot from being activated by the paint 
the paint helps hold the swept bristles in shape
used hitch fasteners to elevate the frames as well as provide 
something for the tiny lights to be wound around. 
adornments were painted with mowed lawn scrubbed with steel wool 
and rubbed with distress picket fence crayon
 coloured his jacket with alcohol ink 
and mummy cloth scarves go with everything this season
 ...oozy light...
