Purple and Red HAB

.


This purple and red Hot Air Balloon is made using my usual techniques. The paper mache pulp was slightly sanded to retain a rough texture for dimension and a weathered look. The acrylic paint finish has been aged with black and white highlights. Here are pictures of it alone and within a group of other HAB's in my studio. Measures 14"h x 9"w. It hangs from an adjustable heavy duty clear line so it appears to be floating in the air. Materials used include: paper mache, acrylic paints, ribbons, fabric covered buttons and mulberry paper. - $110
