One of my older wire tree sculptures, that has been mounted to a piece of slate with the use of 2 part epoxy clay which has been textured and painted with greens and highlighted with copper paint to create a moss effect.
The tree itself is in the style of a pine tree, in green and amber coloured seed beads, and a scattering of dark bronze coloured bobble beads to give a pine cone effect, twysted together with a mix of brown and black coloured copper wire, wrapped round a copper wire core.
Sits approximately 120mm (4.75 inches) in height. The slate base is 150mm (6 inches) at the widest point.

Materials: Glass seed beads, acylic bobble beads, black and mid brown coloured tarnish resistant copper wire, 2 part epoxy clay, acrylic paint, natural slate.
