Vintage Drawer Reliquary Doll

Well, eight months later... and I've finally
finished my mixed media doll: "The Butterfly Boy!"
Emerging from a chrysalis made with mulberry papers, 
dyed netting, glass beads and rusty wire.

My $4 find at the "Art of Recycle" store in Ephrata, PA
has gone from this...

To this... covered with decorative tissue papers
using paper maché, adding a print of a Monarch butterfly, 
and a vintage kitchen soap holder with a dangling chrysalis.

I sculpted a basic chrysalis shape using paper-clay
and then covered it with a photocopied print from
an actual chrysalis, using paper maché paste. 
Final touch: adding additional gold dots and highlights.


It seems to be a universal theme: "Transitions!"

Be blessed... Daryle

  5. Hey Daryle and Katie! Spending a little free time surfing the web and thought I should check in and see what you've been up to. Butterfly Boy is wonderful ... full of hope and promise and possibly just a hint of apprehension. Happy to see that you are still creating wonderful works that capture so many emotions. Take care.
