This is my very own Blood-drop Orchid...and it comes complete with a Pharaonic curse.
The flowers are paper, layered and inked. The stem and roots are made of strips of paper twined together. The hand is telephone wire at its core, and then paper machied and covered with inked craft paper. If anyone wants to see pictures of the hand in its various stages I can post those as well.
Pictures from inside the hand:
Sorry there aren't more of these...I got too excited once I started getting everything covered in layers of paper to stop to take additional pictures.
It's a clock, done in paper (if you want to be technical, the core is cardboard, and the clock components are real...metal and plastic, I would assume). The artwork was all done by hand, by me, with an ultrafine Sharpie. The rest is lots of glue and folding...the cabinet is really just a simple box, only with six coffiny sides instead of four. The top was cut to fit and then edged with more stripped paper. The shininess comes courtesy of Mod Podge. Now to the pictures.
