NEW MEDIUM!! This is my old friend paper clay! Twenty years ago this was my preferred clay. Its fabulous to paint onto and offers warmth to the touch. This particular piece was painted with a dark umber wash. Then I used layers and layers of colored pencil. This is not a kiln fired piece, its air dry paper clay.
The fox stands 4.75 inches tall. In his hand is a clown which goes with the saying on the back of the foxes shirt "be lighthearted like a fox". You can figure out that meaning. The layers of pencil make this piece very rich in tone. I will be making more paper clay pieces in the future but none exactly like his handsome fox.
Sculpted from clay, painted, sealed, stained and signed original art!
