Woo and Boo a Forest Sprite and his Owl!

A new sculpture just in time for Halloween!

Woo and Boo are handsculpted from clay and mixed media.
Woo is sculpted from clay and then handpainted with fine quality paints. Many layers of paint are added to bring out the coloring in his feathers and his big owl eyes!

Boo has a sculpted head and hands on a wire armature. He carries his little compass, a carved walnut shell basket full of berries and tiny mushrooms and a small stick. He also wears his trusty goggles so he can see a little better and not get those nasty gnats in his eyes while he is flying through the air! 

Boo likes to ride along on the back of his faithful owls back and the two of them get into a lot of michief in their travels..especially on Hallow's Eve!

The sculpture is mounted on a non-removeable wooden base for display.

Both Boo and Woo have special Halloween hats that they wear this time of year. They can be removed after Halloween if you wish to display them year round. ;-)

Total height of piece is 8 1/2" x 5" wide 

Little Boo is 6" tall by himself.

A look back at the sculpting process.

A fun piece of woodland magic created to bring a smile!!!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Thank you for stopping by!
