I spent the afternoon in my Den with my eldest grandaughter today. Her mum is "owl mad", and her favourite colour is turquoise, so I made this little plaque for her.
Both parts had black gesso applied, and the heart then had black Pebeo acrylic applied, and the edge painted with silver leaf paint.
The Owl had some texture applied by sponging on Pebeo modelling paste. Then it was painted with iridescent DYNA blue/green acrylic and highlighted with silver and gold DYNA, and the branch painted with bronze DYNA.
It was then glued to the heart, carefully lining up the hole in the heart with the hole on the owl (a kebab stick came in very handy). Finally a coat of spray and shine was applied.
.... and best of all - my daughter loved it!
