Ladybird Beetle

My project was inspired by a South American ladybird beetle.



I loved her body shape and beautiful green and gold colors.


I decided on just wire for her legs because I really struggled with the polymer clay on the wire.

I used a translucent base for her body and covered her with a thin layer of FIMO jade. I was pleased with the results, even though she didn't look very close to my model. But I liked her so much I have made another of her (sans legs) as a pendant.

And in closing:



Because we all need more ladybird beetle butts in our lives, am I right? :)
