Dawn Owl (Not R)


About this design:

For Dawn Owl in sunset. The last picture gets the color best, but are shaky. If you like it I will just color the back and sides of it. Drill a hole? And varnish it. It is 3.7 cm tall. 0,5 thick.
And for you other that wanted pendants I'm working on some so hopefully some are on the way. I haven't forgot.

Components:

Wood and acrylic color

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Hello there! I think the word you are looking for is distressed when you make it less than perfect! I am planning on making a necklace out of this beautiful work of art. I am toying with clear quartz nuggets/chips, and and something soft in a etched or milky blue color. I will know more when I actually have it here in its new home. I am going to let it speak to me! Frida you have out done your self!

    Dawn, I think you are on the right track when it comes to beads. But as you said let him speak to you :D When I look at him I see the twilight, the moon rising the sun almost gone..
