Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

The Three Shaman
I finally glazed my squirrel shaman. Here he is with the shaman group including the smaller sheep shaman and cat shaman that I finished earlier. I feel that the glaze on this one was pretty successful. But, as on the sheep and cat, I finished the eyes and mouth with acrylic paint covered with gloss acrylic varnish. I just can't the detail I want for those part with the glaze.
Squirrel's staff is part of a tree root - pine, I believe. The roots are more interesting than the branches and they are a bit curly!
