This Old Man

   by Carol Anne Peteani for Build A Dream (2014)

The materials I used are 8 x 10 Tempered Hardboard, 9 x 12 Canvas Cloth, 8 x 10 Wire Mesh, 32' Aluminum Wire Spool, Natural Sea Sponge, 12 Yds. Nylon Thread Spool, 8.5 x 11 Card Stock Paper, 1 lb. Van Aken Modeling Clay, 6 x 8 Canvas Board, 15' Plaster Cloth Wrap, 12 x 1 Styrofoam Rod, 8" Wooden Mannequin, 2 - 12 x .375 Square Basswood Dowel, 5/16" round Wood dowel, 1 - 1.5 Wood Disc., Novelty Foam Van Gogh Ear, Corn Starch Biodegradable Packing Peanuts and the MysteryBuild Box as base and fence.

Techniques: I used clay tools, scissors, art palette knife, utility knife, exacto knife, color pencils for Picture on Card Stock, acrylic paints for rest of project, NIKON Coopix S9400 Camera, Fixative on the Frogs and Old Man so paint would not wipe off, water. Paint brushes and sponge for paint effect (not the one that came with project).

I am designing and illustrating a children's book and these are two of the characters from the book.

It is part of the title to the book I am creating.
