red monkey

got one today! velvety soft vintage vibed red monkey. thrilled the light got the metal tops crisp. still wish the glitter would sparkle for the camera. this one goes to the might-be-a-catalog-page file.

major thanks to seattle plastics for the prop - its so good, no photochoppies were required. look! you can barely see it.

I say why wait until Christmas? Cool art balls are great for any month of the year! Especially when they sit on fabulous acryic stands.

Oooh, if only plastics could rule the world......

if only.

For more glitter to sparkle, try the Lord of the Rings number.

and a one anda two anda three tappity tappity tap tap tap tappity tappity tappity taptap tap...no.. wait a minute. NOT dance number!

To get Giladrial's eyes to sparkle, they set up white christmas tree lights on "antlers" to reflect.
Looked great, too.
I think if you set up a whole buncha Christmas lights you'll have way more sparkles showing.
I have no idea what using assorted colors would do for your scene, though. The reds and warms of it are really nice.

And the Monkey looks FUN!
