Wee Goddess Figures


The first goddess figure I made, the largest one pictured above, was for my wife. She wanted a pocket goddess to carry and have for one of her many tiny altars around the house. I enjoyed the process of creating that first one so much that I've made a few more.

These are made with layers of epoxy resin over a copper armature. Each layer is sanded and detailed until it is finished. Then I stain them with oil paint and finish with an oil-based varnish.

They are tiny, and I'm not sure what to do with them. I may gild a couple. I might put a them on little stands or apply pin findings to the back of them for jewelry. I dunno ...

What do you think?

I really like them! Great work! Maybe you could incorporate them in a painting and mount it in a shadow box? Make some cool art cards?

I think they are cool, I would probably bead on them, lol since I bead everything. Enjoy - let us know what you do with them.
