Wacky beeswax coated character Beach swimmer with shell
Wacky character of a beach swimmer holding a shell. This is a beeswax coated piece that stands 9 inches tall. He's got REAL porcupine quills for hair, a swag of seaweed around his neck and that big red nose I love. Warning... those quills are sharp! But oh what a statement they give.
These are different from my regular art. This method involves a special beeswax recipe for this application.
These beeswax characters don't require any fussiness except to keep them out of direct (over 200 degrees) heat - sun. You can buff him up from time to time with a soft flannel like swatch.
Sculpted from clay, painted, sealed, stained and signed original art!
I am a long time artist of over 20 years in the same medium of clay art. My background includes thousands of these characters all unique and one of a kind pieces. Past successful reproduction line with companies Enesco and Dept 56. Holiday shows from 2003 - current.
All artwork is original, signed and dated. Each character starts off as a sketch. I then build an armature and then the sculpting begins. Once ready for paint, I apply top grade acrylics, stain and a light coating of wax.
Each piece is carefully wrapped in tissue, bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Shipping same or next day priority mail or when direct pay clears. Depending on how you purchase.
All artwork and its photos are copyright protected and belong solely to the artist Janell M. Berryman owner of Pumpkinseeds original folk art. You must ask permission to use photos and or any of the content associated with my art. My artwork is not intended for resale.
