Antler Mixed Media

Preparations for the store continues and I wanted to add some earthy antlers to the shop but since I am not a fan of taxidermy I thought I would make some antler mixed media pieces.  I got online and looked for a Canadian distributor for Carboard Safari.  They are a company that brings you “environmentally friendly, recycled cardboard creations” which you assemble yourself.  They come in white and brown.  A few even come in black.  The first one I did was called Buck Jr. and I decided to paint him in a teal.

Then I took my favourite mint spray from Heidi Swap with a flower stencil to give it a bit of dimension.

So many pieces to these guys, you have to be careful putting them together not to bend the bits.

For Fred the moose, I left the craft background and applied black Liquitex Spray Paint with the Crafter’s Workshop Stencil Quatrefoil .  I am loving this new spray product as it has all the convenience of a spray paint without the nasty odour.  It also washes up with water if you get it while it is still wet.

The antlers on this one even curve forward a little.  The details on these are great.

I bought a third (because always in odd numbers when it comes to design and balance) which is Micro Tex, the longhorn.  I wanted to leave one in the natural kraft colour and since this guy’s pieces were so tiny I figured it was the best choice.  He even has a little ear tag.
