The Lady of the Lake

Creating this river otter as the Lady of the Lake has been a labor of love.  She is needle felted from pure wool.  Her eyes are glass eyes.  The base is a gourd that I cut and painted.  She is connected to the base by bolts that I attached to the wire armature with two part epoxy glue.  The frog is polymer clay with glass eyes and painted with acrylic paint.
The dragonflies are a little more complicated.  The bodies, heads, and eyes are glass beads on thin wire.  The legs are twisted wire with small beads for feet.  The wings are Fantasy Film with wire glued on then finished with Golden glass bead gel.
I am very happy with this piece, especially her face.
