Blue Velvet Barnacles

Going deep! I call this piece Blue Velvet Barnacles. Creating a sphere with a balloon, burlap, plaster, sea shells, and star fishes, I boiled 20 gallons of filtered water, used a deep blue dye, and crystallized it for 24 hrs. It didn’t come out with chunky crystals like I wanted but the texture looks like soft blue Velvet! I loved the way it turned out!!  This one was definitely worth the hours it took to conceive and produce.
