Nail Polish BIrd Wading on Acetate Mirror Water

Wading BIrd
Wading BIrd

The bird was  first made of paper clay with floral wire legs, then I added a layer of modeling paste and  white glue. I painted it with nail polish, hence the lack of good detail as nail polish brushes leave a great deal to be desired! The water is a piece of blue acetate film glued to a mirror (both of which I used because i had them lying around…), in a serendipitously rippling pattern. The “shore” is actual dirt mixed with polymer matte medium, which also glued a few stones to the mix (just in case you wanted to know! ). The whole deal is glued to a box top to get it off the “ground.” Do click “Like” if you like this! (It took a whole lot of doing to get it even half right.) Thanks!


By the way, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! And to those who celebrated it HAPPY THANKSGIVVIKAH

  1. I Love this!

    I have been thinking of you and then, last night was watching a movie (I forgot the title), and in a scene was the train station in New Haven. Was a cozy love story. I hope you are okay, and please do get in touch! I’m living closer to your family now, so a visit would be easier, and close to everything too.

    Wishing you a good day!
