Purple and Pink Flower Yellow Butterfly Polymer Clay Sculpture with Glass Dome Display
This is a one of a kind polymer clay sculpture featuring a detailed depiction of three Alfalfa (Colias Eurytheme) butterflies, along with pink and purple flowers inspired by the Impatiens flower. It has a wire armature inside the fired polymer clay for support. I used Swarovski crystals to accent the black eye spots on the butterflies' wings and in the centers of the flowers. The antennae are made from wire.
One of my trademarks is to insert natural quartz crystals into the simulated rock base before firing the piece. There are four in this sculpture. I also added fine details with pastels and acrylic paint on the flower petals. There a also some fallen flower petals and small rocks in the grass, all made from polymer clay. I added a little glitter to the reddish support stalks.
This sculpture is fragile and comes with a glass dome to cover and protect it.
It is 11.5 inches high, including the base. The glass dome is 5.5 inches and the solid oak base measures 7.5 inches across.
