On an armature of wood and wire I sculpt the bodies of each of my creatures with a lightweight air drying clay. I press in different textures to create their skin and cut in their features. The masks and beetles are assembled with wood veneer, air dry clay, beaded legs , hand painted eyes and digitally created wings. Each piece is hand painted with layers of brilliant acrylic paints and coated with a flexible UV and moisture protective acrylic gel or acrylic spray.
