Custom gnome

My sister is a fan of lawn gnomes, so I've long considered the idea of customizing a gnome for her. I was lucky enough to find this one at a yard sale for a very reasonable price.
Personally, I find the original design somewhat creepy, what with his solid black eyes, bright red eyes, solid sky-blue suit, and odd gold boots. He had a high gloss finish so first I did some light sanding and covered the whole thing in a white base coat. I painted it with acrylic paints and finished it with an acrylic top coat.
 His eyes still aren't quite right but the light grey isn't nearly as bad as the black.
