I'm big on texture (as most of you know) and on sculpture as well. I really like to combine the two as often as possible. This 8x11.5" dragonfly art is made out of a plank of wood (found in someone's garbage...I have no shame), some plaster of paris gauze strips (is that what they're called??), spackle, paint, and a whole lot of glitter! I'll be drilling a hole in the back for hanging Smiley

Love the colors, the texture, and how the form breaks out of the edges of the board!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
