"Angelito" Altar Statue ~Sold~
Okay, I feel a little protective and motherly towards this little guy...Sometimes, my creations feel like my children - is that weird? The sugar skull in Angelito's hands is made from paperclay (I'm loving this stuff, btw!). I'm not a sculptor or 3-D artist (you should see some of the pieces I "sculpted" for my Mom in school, yikes!), but I'm pretty pleased with how I crafted his little skullie. :)
Here are my crafted cake plates made from vintage plates, candlesticks, and epoxy:
I have to say that dealing with the epoxy wasn't too bad, it was a pretty simple project! It's hard to make out the details in the pic, but they were a hit with my gift recipients. I love recycling the old and unwanted and creating something fresh and new!
