Lizards


The January theme for a 9 person swap I am involved in was Lizards. I had a hard time with this one, but finally came up with this:
The background was made using colourwash sprays, lettuce, butterscotch and a touch of terracotta, stamped with aged mahogany distress ink. The lizard is made from polymer clay (white and green) coloured with alcohol inks. He is sprawled on a piece of paper quickly coloured with the inks that ran off, edged with aged mahogany.
Sorry guys I left out the fact that the lizard was made using a Krafty Lady mold...thought I'd better say incase anyone thought I'd made it from scratch!
