More Pics of the Snow Owl

Sanding down the shaft before painting with clear varnish.
Adding in details on the feather edges with a mix of raw umber and burnt sienna acrylics.




I used resin here to simulate ice dripping from a branch. The snow is made from rsin and cotton fibers. The trick is to get it where you want before the resin sets up.



I found the branch that the owl is mounted on while I was trout fishing in Owego, NY. I often find some really interesting pieces of wood along the stream.
