Red Eyed Frog Journal by Mandarin Duck

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for popping in :) Today is a simple preview of a wonderful red eyed, green skinned frog from Amazonia rain forests. I love how vibrant are the colours and how jolly this little froggy looks like. My customer is in love with these red eyed frogs and he was especially desperate to see the blue striped belly on his frog's body. So I made sure I painted it properly as close to the original as possible. Also I decided to keep the whole piece quite matte and only to varnish the frog in glossy varnish to give it a wet look. 






Feather T-shirt Design by Mandarin Duck

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I went to the shops to buy some plain T-shirts and today I spent some lovely sunny hours next to my window in the studio making custom design for my T-shirt! 
God I love doing this! This is so satisfying, this is so wonderful and fun!
I would like to share some process pictures along with some lovely shots of me and the ready product. I hope you will like it :) Let me know what you think?!
Do you think guys I should make these for living? I mean... would you ever consider buying clothes with my designs or do you think someone else could? I mean... I know I am polymer clay artist, but I am an artist first, then comes the medium. So let me know, OK? 




And here is some work in progress. I started with outlines, then filled in the main colour and then added up shadows and them highlights by that special BLEACHING TECHNIQUE I showed you in the T-shirt video before!

So let me know if you would like to own a T-shirt of your own with designs like this or something different! 
Thank you for reading,
