Benny, Gus & Sweet William
Benny, Gus & Sweet William are
made with cernit
Each of these angels used the same basic pattern as Delphine with some variations.
Benny the bunny angel is made using the same pattern as Delphine with a bunny head. After it was baked I antiqued it with a dark brown oil paint and wiped it off. I did a number of lady angels with various coloured outfits and the antiquing gave an interesting effect.
Gus, the mouse, is my favorite angel, after I added the body to the top of the metal tip I rolled out a couple of legs and attached them so that they would show underneath. I used edging scissors for the gown and sleeves after the cernit was put between two layers of wax paper. I added gold powder with a brush for detail before it was baked.
Sweet William, the bear angel,
has gold powder accents and a teddy head and arms.
