painted placemats - Lederhosen Panda & Uncle Runkel Elephunkel

I had a goal of painting eight of these placemats and I've reached it! But I have twelve placemats I could strip, so I might keep going - I really like making these. (You can read my earlier blog about how to make them.)

Here's Lederhosen Panda (which my StudioTeaBreak co-host Alison Diamond said would make a great name for a band):



This one's inspired by the launch of two panda books - one of which has my quote on the front cover! - by Sarah Horne and Swapna Haddow & Sheena Dempsey.)



Here's Uncle Runkel Elephunkel, who looks very much like my godfather, space engineer Henry Runkel.



And here are all eight together!
