How should Ursula be repainted?

    I picked this up. It's going to be an indoor thing now, since I don't have a yard. The paint is flaking away in a few spots, so I'm going to remove it all. The question is what to do with it after.

    Should I paint it like it currently is: All brownish with some green dry brushing (I'm guessing they were going for an oxidized copper look).
    Or paint it in full Ursula colors?

    If you don't care about defacing the value then I would make it a fun little project!

    Aww, I love that! If it were me I'd probably paint it like it is because that sounds easier and I'm a mess with anything art-related, but I think it would look amazing if you did it in full Ursula colors. Good luck with the project!

    I'd go with full color....you can always go back to the brown with green if you get frustrated doing the colors!

    Paint is chipping badly in several places anyway. Whoever owned it before used it either on a porch or in their yard. (It is part of a garden set, after all)

    If you're going to keep it (and not sell it), I'd go with full colors :)

    OH HEY.
    So I've slacked off hard core about this while it sat in a corner half finished.
    Painted the purple and details and stuff a while back - today I took the time to mask it off and spray paint the black for her tentacles. Have a little cleanup and retouching to do, but I think she looks nice!

    Before the black:

    Thanks everyone :D

    Oh trust me - don't get too close. I don't always have the steadiest hand and holding her while painting tiny details was not an easy thing to do.

    Other than the fact that that is one of the scariest looking planters I have ever seen,
    it looks awesome.

    Excellent job! I’d have gone with one color, but I’m super lazy like that. I think this looks great.

    You going to spray it with a good sealant?
