Collection: Birds of a Feather........................... Series: Flock of Cardinals
This collection is made using an "image transfer" technique where photo images are actually transferred to raw opalescent clay. This particular clay contains sparkly flecks which give the cabochon glitz and depth, difficult to fully capture in a picture format. Reminding me of snow flakes, I was inspired to name this series " Caught in a Snow Storm"...
The cab is hand formed, the cardinal is hand painted to enhance the image and then the piece is cured. Finally 3 layers of resin are individual applied and cured. This process provides protection for the image, hardens the cab and gives a glass like appearance. When finally complete the cabochons take on a vintage feel which looks as though the cardinal flew off the page of a Victorian greeting card!
Specifications: Listing is for 1 round cardinal beads. The cabs are approximately 18mm As per your instructions, the cabs will be finished in resin.
