It has now been received so I can post! Yippee! So important background, I really really really like “bugs.” So when I was given permission to craft something Brood X related, I ran with it.
I decided to create a little cicada sculpture. For a bit there I was uncertain how it would turn out. I don’t play around with clay much but I really love how it turned out.
The body is made from paper clay, the wings are shrinky dink, the eyes are some red beads I had in my stash, and the legs are wire with paper clay on the upper portions. Body and legs were painted with acrylic paint. Awesomely everything was already in my stash so no new supplies needed. Although I do tend to hoard craft supplies so my craft cabinet is really like a mini craft store.
But anyway…let’s move on to photos!
Sitting on one of the shelves in my living room.
Cicada just chilling on my hand to give you an idea of size.
Oh and edit to add “cicada in pieces” just because.
