This is a sculpture that I complete in September for the North Carolina Mountain State Fair. I didn't have time to take the photos or post them until now because of all the things going on in my personal life. Since October, I have been working non-stop on projects for Halloween, I had my birthday, then started working on a gift for my dad for Christmas, had Thanksgiving, did Christmas shopping, and finished my dad's gift. As I said, I've been busy. I wanted to get this posted today, otherwise I may never have gotten around to it. The sculpture is made of a mix of Super and Firm Sculpey. I added a variety of moss to make the mushrooms on the tree stump, bushes, and moss covering the stump. I used other bits and pieces of other craft materials to make the leaves on top of the small cycads and the colored tops of the sculpey plants. The feathers are real and each was had cut to the appropriate size. I used acrylic paints to bring color to this sculpture. The eyes for the raptor are taxidermy class eyes that I recycled from a previous project that had been destroyed by my cats. As you can see in one of the photos, I received 2nd place for this piece and I'm very proud of it. I hope you all will enjoy it as well.
