This is a great Gourd Frog that I hand sculpted using air dry clay and a real gourd.
Her body is a old wood candle stick, her arms are posable. Her hands are also sculpted, in one she is holding a sculpted bee and the other has a sculpted flower. I made a ribbon rose to put on her head and added a piece of vintage jewerly for the center. I also added a piece of vintage jewerly on the tie at the back of her dress. Her collar is a piece of wired ribbon that I ruffled, the same ribbon is around her waist and the flower on her head is made out of the same ribbon. This a a one of a kind original piece of art. She will be going down to my booth at the Kottage Kupboard, Weber County Fairgrounds this afternoon, this show ends on Saturday, May 7th at 4:00. The next chance to visit my booth will be in Lamoille, Nv. on June 26th and then Stanley, Id. on July 16th and 17th.
I love painting on any kind of "found" items. It is very enjoyable to find a old un-wanted item and turn it into a unique treasure! I also hand sculpt real gourds, which I love to do. After I sculpt and paint the gourd I add vintage item embellishments to make each gourd a one of a kind collectable item!
