This piece is not yet completely done, but, it is close enough. Mainly I need to color the creature that lives within the box, and add some gold leafing to the birdhouse. So, I figured I could get some pics up while waiting for paint to dry.
It is made of wood (birdhouse and coffin), brass (hinges, feet, handles, eyelets, latches), super sculpie (the creature that will be inside the box), and a lot of lacquer.
In other news, I received a nice plug from this site, which I am most grateful for, as I am for all such mentions. I am, of course returning the favor – not as a courtesy, but because they themselves are well-worth giving a shout out. There are a lot of great artists and crafters listed there, a lot of great blogs about artists and artworks there – it is definitely worth checking out.
[edit – Birdhouse, DONE!]
