Christmas 2012 was not a brilliant time for me as my eldest son Mark passed away aged 38. Since that time I have slowly moved forward and last month I went away with my family to have a holiday but also to scatter my late son's ashes. For several years he lived in the Saundersfoot area and I chose a quiet place in a Woodland Trust Woods and then buried his ashes under the young sapling.
Having purchased a Gromit that I could decorate myself I thought what a wonderful idea to paint it and add poppies as a remembrance to my late son.
Starting with the white ceramic gromit I painted three coats of green acrylic paint, allowing to dry thoroughly in between each coat.
Orchid Crafts and glued several of them onto the body and feet, not forgetting to give Gromit a lovely poppy headpiece or should I now call him Poppy Gromit.
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoyed my take on Poppy Gromit. Gromits can be purchased online or at their shop in the Cribbs Causeway near Bristol
