Loving Doves

Posted by Julie Benner on January 22, 2013 at 5:05 PM

I wanted to make something for Valentine's Day that wasn't too cutesy, so I came up with the idea of a pair of white doves, preening each other as bird pairs do. It was a nice idea, and I really liked the shapes of the doves I sculpted, but the white clay turned out to be a lot of trouble. In the end, I had to paint both of the pairs of doves that I made with white acrylic paint, which I then antiqued with silver and lightly varnished. The dove pairs (I made two pairs) ended up having a distressed, antiquey look to them. This was not my original vision, nor is it my usual style, but I like it pretty well. I decided to list my dove couples on Etsy, and see if anyone wants to adopt them. See my earlier post called Valentine's Day Cardinals for a different bird pair I have listed on Etsy.
