Chef Piggy's New Clothes

This was a quick and easy makeover for this adorable piggy I found at a flea market a few months ago.  His clothes were burgundy, gold and green and he looked more like Chef Luigi.  Nothing wrong with that, mind you, but he didn't sell at three different locations so I decided to give him a French flare.  I simply repainted his jacket, pants, scarf and buttons.  I left everything else the same.  I wish I could show you a side by side of the before and after, but I wasn't thinking ahead.  
His chef coat has great detail which I accented with a little blue paint on the buttons and scarf.
His pants got a coat of grey and his jacket was painted with antique white.  In the end I gave him a color wash with some raw umber, then I wiped it away just leaving enough in the folds and crevices to give some definition.  I do hope now someone finds him worthy of adoption.  Bon appetit!
Thanks for taking a peak.

He's adorable. I had to laugh when you showed his back side and his cute little tail. I'm sure someone will adopt him next time.
