Yesterday a long time friend and repeat Combat Garden Gnome customer posted this picture. He purchased both of these gnomes in the same week and set them out in his yard two years ago:
So this is what one of my gnomes looks like after two years worth of New Mexico sun and snow* and whatnot. I'm pretty damned proud of my paintjob.
Combat Garden Gnomes: much more resilient than those other garden gnomes.
In other news, I've posted up another handful of Flamethrower Gnomes in my Etsy shop: http://etsy.com/shop/thorssoli if you've been waiting for one.
