Owl Pendant for Lynn ??


About this design:

It meassure 5.5 cm tall but I can make it shorter, almost 2 cm in the other direktion.
I have been running around searching driftwood that could fit this project, at the end I had to use a knife and carve it to a smaller size, then polish whit sandpaper... I have a other piece of driftwood that is 5 cm tall whitout any carving, I can paint a owl on that aswell if wanted a other choice ;)
The painting I have worked whit on quite a few hours puh :D Now it needs a hole and some laque... What do you think?? What do you think Lynn ??

Components:

Wood, Acrylic color
