The Happy Prince 01 by Checanty The Happy Prince 01 by Checanty
"High above the city, on a tall column, stood the statue of the Happy Prince."
(Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince)

I did a small series of illustrations for Oscar Wilde's 'The happy Prince' for school.

The dolls consist mostly of plaster bandages and cloth held together by Wood glue.

It's a great piece. Is it a collage or a painting? The gloss is wonderful.

Checanty Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Student General Artist
You'd probably call it 'collage'. The background is several layers of painted cardboard (similar to a diorama) and the figures, well, are dolls made of ... Stuff (plaster, woodglue, all the good Things ...) :)

I mostly worked with plaster bandages, Wood glue and some Kind of Air drying Clay. The Wings Are actually real feathers on wire, that I formend with Wood glue.
