Butterfly Bunny







This little bunny is just 4 inches tall. He comes complete with his little spring flower base.  I tried something new  for his little wings. They were first drawn on to velum paper. I next glued floral wire to the wings so that I could affix them to his wire frame.  After they were dry, a coat of liquid polymer was applied to the painted surface. After they were completely baked, I fipped them over and applied a coat to the un painted side and sprinkled some glitter before baking. They were a lot simpler than my old method and I like how they turned out better.
