Anchuca Weekend

This is the project I made at a Miniature Retreat in Vicksburg, MS. this past weekend.

This is the project in the handmade stained glass case. It doesn't show up in the picture but the base and the knob on top of the case are purple glass. The base of the project is 4-1/2" square and from the base to the top of the statue is 5-1/2"

This is the front of the project. We chipped and painted bricks to age them and then laid a patio. I chose to lay my patio bricks in a herringbone pattern and then built the pedestal for the statue. We painted and aged the statue and added snow.

Wire was twisted to form plant stems and then we cut leaves by hand and added holeless beads for berries.

This is a closeup of the aging on the statue and bricks. When I got home I added the little bunny and the bird feeder and cardinal
