"Spring Chick" now in my Etsy shop!
This cute little chick is ready for Spring, he’s looking for someone to deliver this special egg to and is now in my Etsy shop. (see link at right "Alycia's Art Etsy Shop" under "Where to Buy My "Original" Handcrafted Artworks" heading)
“Spring Chick” is an original hand sculpted and hand painted papier mache art piece. The polka dot egg shaped body with spiral twisted wire legs stands on a 3” diameter round papier mache box. He has a ruffled collar made of layers of antiqued crepe paper. His wings are attached with a small wire peg and also glued to keep secure. The small papier mache egg he is holding has been glittered to look like sugar crystals. I individually handmade twelve of these little chicks in 2006, and each is signed, dated and numbered. I only have three left, this one is #9 out of 12. Approximately 6” high
