Just 3 penguins loving a dance. Otis, Sacramento and Milo would go to any lengths to synchronise their movements and throw some shapes.
The Joy of Dancing
Part of the Army of Joys Collection
These 3 Penguins have been embellished from beak to foot with decoupage, gold leaf, paint, found object, reclaimed textiles and donated treasures. The base is wooden and has been covered in paper mâché , which softens the contours of the shape, and then covered in decoupage using hand cut papers. Each layer is sanded before the next to maintain a smooth surface. This is finally painted over with three coats of pva to protect the surface and create a smooth to the touch surface.
All my pieces are individual and one-off - as I only work with recycled and reclaimed objects I never know what I am going to find. If you are looking for something particular, please ask - and I'll start looking!
