Heron Carving Art - Re-purposed

Postby fredfow3 » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:38 pm

Hey all,

Made this for our local transfer station's office. It's just a Vectric clipart Heron, carved from a old countertop. The background is 1/4" ply from a packing crate which was torch flamed and then given a turquoise wash. The frame is made from an old fence. We rubbed the bird with Watco Danish Oil to make it pop.

BTW: the transfer station is adjacent to some conservation area wetlands, so blue herons are frequent visitors.

I thought it came out pretty good, hope they like it.

Cheers,

Fred

Beautiful job! I really like the fact it was done with reclaimed materials.

Thanks for sharing!
