it’s just a sample. they don’t even have a clear finish on them. i making these for some of the shows i plan on doing this summer and fall. they will be part of a display. the sweaters work well on them though i’m not sure of this will be the final look. i want the letters to pop out a bit more so i may sand them down leaving the dark stain in the letters only and re-stain them with a lighter color. they are so cute. now i have to figure out how to display them.
