Yippie Sun and Star Ornaments are finished

The sun Ornaments is 6x6.I created the sun with cloth, stuffed, gessoed, painted sun shine yellow..Antiqued. Then applied papier mache' with glue, painted again with Terra Cotta, Then did his eyes, nose, checks, Then painted again with Gleams, Antiqued again then sealed with a sealant.

The Star Ornament is 6 1/2 width and from tip to tip is 7 inches in length.I created the Star with cloth, stuffed,did NOT gessoed, But painted directly on the cloth using off white , then sanded , the cloth feels like soft fine leather , almost a velvety feel,..Antiqued. Then applied papier mache' with glue, painted again with Tapestry Wine, Then did his eyes, nose, checks, Then painted again with Gleams, Antiqued again then sealed with a sealant.
