For the whistle I glazed it used color glaze. Now that it is painted I’m happy that the paint mixed well for the fire especially in the middle. Some challenges were painting without mixing the colors becuase reaching in the cracks of the fire usually touched the other parts of the whistle. If I could start over I would try to spend more time in creating the wood texture in the logs. I would also try to get the brown a bit lighter on the sides.
