I'm about 3/4 of the way through this part of my latest piece (the glue is still drying, and I'm going to add feathers to the tail, and I'll be glazing the clay areas), so I wanted to give you all a little preview:
The glue stinks to high heaven, which is why it's on the stove--yay for oven fans!
It's about 6-8 inches wide (I haven't measured yet), and the color is more teal than straight blue.
Now, I want to hear from you. This is not a commissioned piece--it's just me following my own instincts, hoping to sell it on Etsy or locally (and at a price where I'll actually be able to pay a couple of bills, y'know, and all... ;) *ahem*). So, I want to know which you think I should make this into:
*An elaborate hat pin
*Part of an actual top hat
*Part of a 16x20" mixed media collage for the wall or mantle
I'm going to decide soon, so let me know in the comments here on the blog or on the Facebook page! After tomorrow (Sunday), there'll be no going back!
