The supporting characters are beginning to make their appearances. One of the paper clay frogs is taking shape on the base, and the dragonfly that will alight on her paw is “in process” in the lower left corner of the photos. I made the dragonfly body, head, and legs from wire and beads. The wings are a fabulous product called “fantasy film” stiffened (and attached to the body) with wire, coated with Golden Glass Bead Gel and sprinkled with green glass beads. The gel starts out opaque then dries clear. In the photo it’s still opaque.
Here’s the first stage of the frogs and dragonfly. The white on the dragonfly is the glue before it dried clear – Alene’s Quick Grab, by the way.
