These are beautifully painted, so much detail - tiny detail! I'm hanging these and my painted stars all year round - not just for the Christmas tree.

"Color & pincel master!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Wow, the tiniest detail is beautifully painted. These were given as individual gifts for my “lunáticas” group of girlfriends. They were all in love with their moons asking where I got them! So I told them :) I must say though, that despite the super careful eco packaging, two of the moons arrived each with a corner broken. (Crazy glue works magic.) Nonetheless, something to keep in mind in future shipments. Anyway, gracias! Eres un absoluto y real artista.
