The second photo is after I lightly primed it with some antiquing, using walnut crystals. Wanted to keep the colors traditional for Spring and Easter tide.
A little story in creating this design
This is my "Easter Parade" of sweet baby chicks. Marching and framed in the eggshell design as in a sugar/diorama styled egg. Our charming bandleader is showing off her prissy egg shell bonnet tied with ribbon and spring flowers, toting one under her sweet wing, still with the roots dangling below. The handsome, tag along chick is close behind. Very dignified, wearing his bunny eared cap. On his way he managed to uproot a healthy carrot and is clutching it under his little staunch wing. What a Dandy, Easter Celebration!
Eleven colors in Valdani and one in DMC. Approximately 8" x 6 1/4" at the widest points
