New Fossil Pieces

I got to spend Saturday with friends, and we spent the day working on art projects. I finished these 2 pieces, and have plans for both of them. "Amber Seas" is an organic fossil piece with trilobites and shells in green tones, and is for a friend's birthday. "Mercurical" is a blue and silver fossil piece, and is one I will probably keep. I am having fun working with this technique, and have plans to do some bigger work on larger wood cradles.

Another Fossil Piece

I have now finished my second fossil piece from a workshop. I like this one better, but still need to work on shaping more. It is done with polymer clay, distress embossing powders and encaustic wax.

I did have some trouble with air bubbles, leading to a few cracks, but I think I will keep this piece anyway and hang it up where no one will see the cracks.
