Four Seasons Brown Owl Miniatures
“Owls for Every Season” is a set of four seasons brown owl miniatures created from polymer clay representing: winter, spring, summer, fall. I sculpted all of these critters by hand in my rural Pennsylvania studio this month (January) which explains why Mr. Winter Owl looks a little grumpy 🙂 I think Spring is my favorite! Such big eyes, full of wonder at the world.
The set is available for sale in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MarieYoungCreative
About the Four Seasons Brown Owl Miniatures
Each owl is sculpted around a tiny foil armature, so every one is a unique creation. I used a custom blend of translucent clay, pigmented clay and cinnamon (yes, the kitchen spice!) to achieve the warm brown coloration on the owls. The scarf on Winter and the bikini on Summer where created from a striped millefiori cane–no paint!
