Finding vintage Christmas blow molds is getting harder and harder these days--so when we stumbled upon 6 at a local tag sale, we were in heaven. To the right, with very minimal paint loss is a vintage Union Products mold, probably late 70's? It was FILTHY. Click on the photo. The others are in desperate need of TLC and paint--we'll be using a lot of masking tape and Krylon Spray Paint for plastics to make the very careful restoration.
We love this KRYLON product - A WORD OF WARNING THOUGH - For hard vinyl only--if used for soft pvc/vinyls,
it reacts with the plasticizers in the soft pvc/vinyl and will never
dry. You can find it just about everywhere.
That reminded us about the Holy Grail of Vintage BlowMold sites--always worth a look at again http://blowmoldsrus.webs.com/
