Look at the playful hand gestures of the raccoons on my Pinterest “Critters” board. Aren’t they adorable! I can’t help but see “Jazz Hands,” and you know me, when one of those stray thoughts pops into my head, there is a good chance that a sculpture will result.
Jazz Hands: The Project
I had a small shadow box that I thought would make the perfect frame for a little raccoon so I sculpted the little guy to fit inside. For the background I stamped a sheet music design on a clay sheet highlighted with gold mica powders.
The frame has a sculpted swirl in purple verdigris. I repeated the sheet music stamp in gold along the black sides.
This is also the first project where I made my own glass eyes.
