More Mixed Media Critters

I put polymer clay backs on the owl and the squirrel .  I made a marbled orange sheet with Pardo Art Clay to finish the owll and a marbled green for the squirrel.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

My muse likes owls so I made a couple more. The first one is multicolored, the frame is 18 gaurge wire and the weaving is done with 28 gauge wire.   I combined the new soft Kato Pearl with purple Pardo Art Clay for the backing. I used a texture stamp for the pattern and highlight the raised areas with Pearl Ex.  

Here's how it looks assembled. I use liquid Kato along the edges to secure the wire to the clay. 

The next owl is in shades of green with gold accents.  

I mixed green and yellow Pardo Art Clay with Kato Pearl and then created a crackle effect with gold leaf for the backing.  

This is the finished owl. 

I have been mixing the new Kato Pearl, which is soft and sticky,  with Pardo Art Clay.... 1 part Pardo with 3 parts Kato Pearl... So far I am very pleased with the consistency.  My next project is to cane with the new mixture.  I will let you know how it goes.
