It took a while (days....) to make all the leaves and fruits which ornate the frame. I gave up to count the leaves at 300.... It is 10 cm long and 15 cm high at the heighest point. I made it a bit blurry, as it is an old piece and the mirrors fade and blind with time.
The first steps: sculpting the frame and the fruits
Sculpting finished, but still unpainted:
Covered with gesso and partially painted
Painted and aged
We have tropical heat here, so I won't make too much in the next few days, but I hope I will be able to post next week.
Have a great week,
