Jess and I painted Betty Boop‘s guts their original mustard color this morning, but she was upside-down hanging from the ceiling at the time (Betty, not Jessica), so no pictures yet. Then we dropped her down onto her sawhorses and Amy Lippman came by to work on the lettering. Dang, Betty is looking cuter every day.

They say it is bad luck to write anything cute on the bottom of a boat, but this just had to happen. Besides, superstition is bad luck.

But even high-hide white didn’t quite cover on the first round, so we’ll have to hit it once again tomorrow. Meanwhile I colored in between the lines on the transom. What a cutie. Some of that needs a second coat as well before she gets her black outline art.
