|Sweet Melons, Miniature Wall Sculpture by Stéphanie Kilgast|
Today a bit of the so called creative process, which really is just how I work 😀
While browsing for fruit and vegetables for my daily miniature veggie challenge, (which is a bit on hold right now, but I’ll get back to it) I stumbled upon this beautiful picture by Iain Bagwell:

Needless to say, I went into a melon and watermelon sculpting mode for the daily challenge.
Lots of juicy fun and it also made me eat more melon during summer than I ever did. Watermelon + melon charentais + nectarine has been a (almost) daily fruit salad. Yum!

It was juicy (huhu) and fun, and the image of the melon composition kept getting back into my head.
So I made a few melons and put them aside for a bigger composition.
I needed a background and wanted this composition to be able to hang from a wall.
A few sketches for a rough idea how to make this.
The background had to be polymer clay, so the whole piece would be clay ‘soldered’ instead of glued.
I liked the blue background well enough and so I went for an aged wood.
Btw, want a tutorial about the aged wood made from clay? If yes, say so below 😉
Anyway, so I had the melons, I had the background, I had this beautiful picture of Ian Bagwell, and this is the result.
I put it in my shop, too. Not sure if it’ll sell, but it sure was a fun thing to do 🙂
