Univ of Michigan pencil holders

I’ve got a niece who’s at Michigan for her post-grad, and her dad has always loved the school, so I made them pencil holders. Painting the seal took years off my life. I prefer the embedded wooden version, lol.

Wow! Both versions are great! That blue is nice to look at and the paint job is good! I like that simple box design, too. Terrific stuff!

Both of these are amazing but I agree on the hand painting being a rough one!

The colorful acrylic and detailed painting are nice, but the wood one :sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart: The screen cut out really makes it pop!
