A Little Cherub

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
