    You should paint it with folk art acrylic paint. Be careful you don't get the paint too thick on the inside cuts or it might not go back together properly. I've sold a couple for $ 35.00

    Post a pic after you get it painted, I'd love to see it finished.

      I painted mine with acrylics. I sold 3 so far for $50.00 each. You did a nice job cutting.

            It's in SSW&C issue 12, check over on the left 'Order back issues' it might still be available.

                Cripes, I've been giving them away!!!!!!!!
                I've made the 8ish" ones and doubled the size and made (you guessed it) 16"ers.
                Perhaps I better get some nice wood and make some more and SELL em!!!
                Cripes, fifty bucks...... ohhh my. I'm such a crummy business man.

                        Very nice. An unusal concept for a puzzle.

                          Very nice Lance. Painting can be a pain but sometimes well worth the effort.

                            I've cut probably 30 of those birds and I still am not tired of it. There is also a standing parrot from an old WOOD magazine from back in the 90's. I cut that one too. I LOVE those birds. I use the Walmart (also Hobby Lobby) paint that costs about 70 cents a bottle. Then put a clear lacquer on it. I sold those for 20 to 30 bucks.

                            You did a great job on a FUN project.

                              Beautiful puzzle. I might have to pencil that in on the top of my todo list.

                              It's all fun

                                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
