The pot of gold prop for my St Patrick's Day Leprechaun door display is done. I hoped to get everything completed earlier this weekend, but distractions prevailed. I still might add little legs/feet to the pot, but we'll see. The lantern and the door itself are very close to being finished.
I wanted the rings to curve upwards, so to avoid sagging, I turned the pot upside down while they dried.
A foam core "shelf" to hold the gold mound was glued in just under the lip and painted black.
It was really tedious at first filling in the open space, but once built up enough, it became a lot of fun creating the crooked stacks giving it some personality.
