Red & Green Leaves Teapot

This lovely teapot was wood burned, relief carved around the leaves and painted with acrylic paint & metallic paint. Its handle is cut from a piece of pine wood. Stands 11 1/2" tall and is 14" around.

Great piece of driftwood made the perfect base for this maiden done with faux painted acrylics, dimensional paints for the beading and a combination of acrylics and gourd dyes for the headdress and small pot.
