All ready for Christmas

Christine and Company

This little snowgirl is all ready for Christmas. She's even got her little kitty all decked out. She's got snowflakes and Christmas lights dangling from her knitted hat, and her kitty has one to match. At the moment she's contemplating where she wants to hang her Christmas wreath.

Christine and Co. were created by me, Kim Owens, using my own handmade paper clay. Once cured the piece was first coated with a layer of Gesso and then handpainted using acrylic paint. Chalks and oils were used to create shadows and highlights, and finally the entire piece was antiqued to bring out all the details. Lastly, the entire piece was coated with a satin finish sealer to protect the finish and keep the colors vibrant for years to come. Christine's Christmas lights and eyes were created using custom colored, or hand painted polymer clay.

Christine and Co. was created in my smoke free studio in sunny California. She stands 11 inches tall by 7 inches deep and will come to you signed, dated and ready for display.
