Party Animals

A few years ago for Christmas I had made a set of magnets for my family, but just recently my brother’s magnet from that original set was discovered by a particularly naughty puppy. So for his birthday this year I decided to make him a set all his own.

Here is the original, doggie hampered magnet.

Below is it’s replacement and the rest of the Party Animals.

Each magnet is made of a 2″x2″ piece of 1/4″ bamboo plywood (complements of my woodworking husband). I painted on them with acrylic paint which was slightly diluted in order to let the lovely lined texture of the wood come through the entire image. I think the dancing penguin is my favorite.

If you would like to procure your very own set of individually designed and illustrated magnets please contact me with the following details:

Color preferences

Animal preferences

Theme preference (Party, Culinary, Sprots, etc.)

Magnets are sold for $12 each or in Sets of 5 for $50. (one animal drawing per magnet)

If you would like magnets with a different number of animals, finer detail or something other than animals being silly just contact me with the details and I will get back to you with a quote.
