It’s a no-brainer which version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to paint…the original, of course!

Clockwise from left: Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, Willy Wonka, Veruca Salt, an Oompa Loompa, Charlie Bucket, and Mike Teavee.

Wonka with an Everlasting Gobstopper and Augustus Gloop with not one but two Wonka bars.

Violet Beauregarde just before turning into a blueberry and Veruca Salt in the midst of a temper tantrum.

Mike Teavee in all his spaghetti western movie glory and Charlie Bucket with his golden ticket!

And of course the Oompa Loompa! He’s mainly the reason why I went with the classic version and not Tim Burton’s. Nothing against the re-make, but I love my Oompa Loompas with orange faces and green hair and those kicky overalls.
