Snails 5/33 and 6/33

My inspiration for these snails was blue and white
porceleins of China.
They were using cobalt oxide for making their blue pigments.
You can read about it here.
These snails are made of polymer clay and real shells.
and I have painted the tattoos with acrylic colors.

I have painted a tree branch white and attached my
polymer clay blossoms to it.
The inspiration for this organized collection
is from a wonderful Flickr group by Camilla Engman.
