Bernie, the whimsical St. Bernard is all ready for his Christmas photo with the family! He's wearing his reindeer antlers and everything!
Bernie was created by me, Kim Owens, using my own handmade paper clay. Once cured he was hand painted using acrylic paint. He was then chalked and oiled to create highlights and shadows and then antiqued to bring out all the details. Finally Bernie was sealed with a satin sealer to protect the paint and keep the colors vibrant for years to come. Bernie's antlers and Christmas lights were created with custom colored polymer clay. Small rusty bells hang from his antlers as well.
Bernie was created in my smoke free studio in sunny California. He stands 6 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 7 inches deep and will come to you signed, dated and ready for display.
