I covered a polystyrene ball with t-shirt fabric which had been laced with a mix of black and white Powertex to make a grey. Once I’d created some texture I added the clay cherub on the top and put a piece of cotton yarn around it and painted them with the Powertex mix. I mounted everything on a polystyrene base.
Now completely dried and ready to be aged.
I added white pigment to create a stone effect.
And finally some silver to the wings and the hair.
It looks much more stone like than I can capture in a photo.A Little Cherub
