You can use them on Greeting cards, Buckets, Clay Pots, or anything you want to adapt them to. To see more photos of my Bucket with all the chickies, please go to my Picture Trail site. The album is Chickie Babies. You are welcome to download the pictures to your computer and then go to and upload them and have them printed for 12 cents each. They might be a big help for details. The old galvanized bucket I painted my Chickie Babies on was cleaned with soap and water. It was already distressed from the Elements of Nature. I dry brushed the bucket White Latex paint, leaving alot of the metal to show. I use Minwax Polyacrylic Satin Varnish as a finish.
