Another Hobgoblin Tap Handle Repaint

Museum Artist/Restoration Project Manager/Miracle Worker Kelly has completed another Hobgoblin repaint, this one as a commissioned piece for a friend. I think he surpassed his previous repaint job that I talked about in this post. Once we delivered the finished product, our friend described his reaction to it as follows:

"I just love the subtle touches Kelly applied. For example the copper highlights on the shoulder shroud and all the shading on the skin. The eyes pop so much more than on the original. Also love the gold handle of the sword and silver blade. The purple and green scheme works great. I can't say enough about it. It's at the top of my list of favorite taps!!!"

I'm very lucky to have a friend as talented as Kelly, who has given taps new life through repainting and repairs!
