Thank you all for your very generous and positive response to my Stoned Critters. It is very much appreciated. I have plans for others as well and will share them when (if) they happen:)
I have been playing around with the epoxies, mostly to get a feel for them and figure out how they work in different situations. I always learn best by doing rather than watching so I tend to go straight to the trial and error stage after doing a bit of homework. These are some of those trials....
Rocks in green mica.
My bees swarmed this summer, but failed to find a home so they built a hive on the side of one of my small trees. I tried to rehome them into a hive box, but they adamantly refused. When the weather got cold, they did not last long out in the open, but they did leave some lovely comb behind. This is a bit of brood comb encased in clear resin.
Tree twigs and green clay.
Winter beech twigs in the center, these would be leaves in the Spring.
Coal and coal-ash = light and dark ponies...These and the Stoned Donkeys are 2.25x4 inches
Honeycomb from the bottom of the cells.
Fungus among us.
Bits of flower fluff in bracelets.
If anyone would like any of these, let me know. I can get some some fittings for them so they can be worn as pendants. The bracelets are rather small (and my hands are rather large), they would fit a child or small wrist.
If you would like one of the Stoned Donkeys or ponies let me know about that as well. I have thought of selling them on Etsy, but I have no idea what to charge. Any thoughts about that??? What, if anything, would you pay for something like that? I like making stuff, I do NOT like shopping:)
