Spindle Table Leg Dragonflies with Raised Fleur De Lis and Medallion Patterns, Textured Peacock Feather Wings and Sea Shell Wings

Update Spring 2017
I'm no longer creating the dragonflies and butterflies.
Thank you for all your purchases and support!

It's actually been a few months since I had a dragonfly post
and I have lots of new ones to share. All of these
are made using raised patterns.

For the fleur de lis dragonfly I used the same process
as the textured medallion dragonflies I've made in the past
to create the pattern and I really like how it turned out.

I used a door latch for the eyes...

and added a piece of vintage tin on the triangle shaped body.

This dragonfly was actually shipped to Norway!

I painted in a verdigris look with copper on the medallions.

For the sea shell dragonfly, I used the texture
compound to embed mixed seashells.

I had made a shell wing dragonfly once before using scallop shells.

Last year, I added new ocean life designs including a shark, 
jellyfish, crab and seahorse

This year I added six more designs, staying with
 the sea life theme and using the same colors and dot style painting.

I came up with a whole list of other sea life or beachy designs I wanted to do
 but I picked six and figured that would be enough for this year.

I was never able to find any more pre-made natural canvas stockings after those first few
I found on Ebay so I hire someone to make them for me to my own specifications.

Speaking of octopus, I've been on an octopus kick lately, and 
after creating the octopus stocking, I decided I wanted to make a mosaic octopus,
and yes I just used the word octopus five times in this sentence.😜
