At last, I’m going to post a new sculpture. Well, not exactly “new”…this sculpture was done way back in January. I had such a hard time getting decent photos of this one…in outdoor light, the color looked whitish, and in indoor lighting, it looked black. It took some doing to get the colors right. I ended up using this brown faux leather fabric that was on hand and a warm lamp and I finally got the colors right.
This brown pig is large, like my two silver ones. He also used my last beloved set of “leaf” pendants for ears. I have been unable to find more anywhere, and I’ve looked for months. So this is the end of a piggy era. However, I’ve collected a few other things that should work as pig ears, too. I’ll miss these ears, though…they were ideal!
– The center of this sculpture is made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire, and all the wire you see is dark annealed wire. Most of it is 16 gauge, and some is 19 gauge, and then there is a little black craft wire by the ears and nose, and for the base of the tail. The ears I’ve already explained, and the nose is, of course, a button.
– The sculpture measures 7 inches long by 3 1/4 inches tall by 3 inches wide.
Thanks for looking!
