Just sit there and enjoy
Well, art takes time to craft. And Kent’s images are certainly worth the wait. I have seen a teaser, and MOMMA MIA! The St Michael’s Report is gonna be a jaw dropper. So today, we have the Higgin’s Chairs. Ya ya, I know. But I got what I got. So just sit down and enjoy, or at least pretend to enjoy.
you may recall the story on the chairs found that were sold from the Higgin’s Factory? If not, we have a link at the end of this story.
Here is the receipt.
Look super close and you can still see the HIGGIN’S Stencil.
They are TUCKI-WAY chairs. It was common practice to mark them with a stencil BTW, and so since they were not built at Higgins, I thought, mmmmm, lets clean them up.
Well, one had a faded stencil and so I let that one original, but it’s the worst chair. The others cleaned up great, and I replicated the stencil from the original one. Taking the original photo, and cleaning up the art as a file.
Them printed it out, and hand cut the type,
And took a shot at it. Randomly doing it fast, so i’s not perfect. One must channel the inner thoughts of a worker being paid 25 cents an hr back in the 40’s being given this job.
DANG! It worked!
Some Linseed Oil and Krylon, and we have chairs!
Last night we had a fun little get together and tried them out. NO BREAKS! WOOHOOO!
Full Moon and a great setting for the Higgin’s chairs.
