Oh how they " Sparkle."..

oh how they shine, they're my sweet Valentines .
" Sparkles "

Made of air dry clay over Apoxie Sculpt on a heavy resin base, tape covered wires for hat tails,
a small aluminum heart hangs from the full crepe paper collars, painted in washes with acrylics then sealed with a matte spray varnish. Resin base iced generously with chocolate colored glitter, signed and dated, hanger attached to back ready for displaying.

What would Valentine3s be without a Wumbwie...

Valentine Wumbles/Wumbwies;
Made of air dry clay over a foam core base with wire, crepe paper collars, cuffs and ever present Mr.Smiley at their caps, all acrylic painted with mica powder blushing .Both have hand painted glass eyes , each sealed with matte varnish spray.
A crackle finish was applied to all hearts on "a".
The wings were blush ever so lightly on "b".

WIPS of Sparkles

They were going to make their debut on SpookTimeJingles Hootenanny today...didn't quite make the time table .

So email me or just leave me a comment here ,for any questions or if you are interested in purchasing my "Sparkles", I take paypal and prefer to sell in the USA...

More later, SEE YA!!!
