#3 Whimsical Woodland Circle: Amanita Regalis & Red Oak Reverie

  • Crafting this wonderful sculpture demanded meticulous attention and time, taking approximately 16 hours to bring to life.
  • 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
  • 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 this wonderful live edge Red Oak wooden base, using Epoxy glue and adding my artificial soil/moss mixture. I have added a pine cone for a centre piece, as I felt this complimented this design and gave it a natural finish. This takes 2 hours, because I build up the layers to replicate the forests floors natural form.



From a nearby Welsh forest, where ancient oaks guard timeless tales, emerges a mesmerizing centrepiece.


Hand-sculpted Amanita Regalis mushrooms dance atop red oak wood slice, encircling a foraged pine cone, echoing the wood's eternal charm.


This piece is a woodland dream for fairy enthusiasts and fantasy lovers, infusing spaces with a touch of forest magic.

Gaze closely at the details within and feel humbled by the mushrooms beautiful growth formations as the wonderous skirt begins to fall and its hidden gills begin to emerge.
