Last fall a few odd planets aligned and we were able to receive a visit from a longstanding Windstone fan and friend, Amanda Richardi, who is known on the forum as Dragonfeathers. Mandy was here long enough for us to put an airbrush in her hand and turn her loose to find out what it is really like to paint Windstone figurines all day. Well, she proved to be a quick study and paint some outstanding pieces. We have decided to sell a few of these as real authorized Windstone test paint pieces, painted and signed by Mandy. Some will be sold through the store, and others through eBay.
This is a our Female Griffin, test-painted in a color scheme inspired by poison Dart frogs.
This griffin is airbrushed in a wild mix of metallic green, violet, and blue, decorated all over with black stripes and spots. She has a metallic silver-painted chain around her neck set with a single olivine-colored Swarovski crystal jewel, and she wears two smaller chains on her tail, each set with an amethyst-colored jewel. She has metallic blue glass eyes and her finish is glossy.
Mandy has signed this griffin on her grey felt pad, and she is marked with the name “Dart Frog Test Paint #1”. This griffin also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
