#1 Enchanted Symphony - 'The Awakening - Amanita's Dance' Collection

  • Crafting this wonderful sculpture demanded meticulous attention and time, taking approximately 17 hours to bring to life.
  • The beautiful base for this piece was part of a large strip of live edge wood, hand cut and hand finished, I carefully segmented this large strip of wood to create this whimsical little backdrop for these hand sculpted Amanita mushrooms. This process takes me about 1 hour to get the desired finish.
  • Each Amanita mushroom has been delicately sculpted using Fimo polymer clay and takes roughly 7 hours to create all 5 mushrooms.
  • After the baking process, I water down some white acrylic paint and apply 4 layers to each mushroom stalk, skirt and gills. Watered down dark tones are added to areas to enhance details further.
  • I then add another 4 layers of watered down beige to the mushroom hats, ensuring every coat of paint is fully cured before adding the next layer.
  • The speckles are intricately painted onto the hat of the mushroom in a form that mimics the mushrooms natural white speckles. The whole painting process takes about 7 hours to complete.
  • Once all of my replicated Amanita mushrooms are complete, I carefully secure them to the wonderful live edge wood base, using Epoxy glue and adding my favourite artificial soil/moss mixture. This takes 2 hours, because I build up the layers to replicate the forests floors natural shape and form.
