Queen Bee

I was asked to make a couple of elements to be incorporated into a hair style for a fashion show at the hairdressing college. The theme is based around a Queen Bee. So we decided that there would be a crown and one of my bees but this time a honey bee.

I didn’t make the crown but if I ever need one again, I will. I only paid £7 for it so I shouldn’t have expected too much.

Here are a few photos of the bee – the fashion show is later today and I’ll have more photos after that.

A Superior Wasp

This one ranks up there with my dung beetle. I love it. I love it so much that I’m keeping it. It now sits next to my laptop on my desk where I do all my creating.

I’ve started incorporating fabric paint to the legs to give them a bit more detail and depth. I hope you like him as much as I do.

Humble Bumble

My first attempt at a bumble bee. Large and fat, with an almost fluffy bum – I like him a lot although I am thinking of redoing the wings. I’m unsure about the sunflower as well but like I said, I’m still learning.

Monsieur Beetle

I’m going to gush now. This was my favourite make. It still is. Everything about this creation makes me feel incredibly proud, from the beetle to the dung ball. I know it’s an odd subject but once I’d done the beetle I got so carried away with the whole setting.

The dung ball was so much fun to make!

A Sting in the Tail

I’m not sure what inspired me to make a scorpion although once I’d worked through the preliminary sketches I knew that I would enjoy making this one. It was the curve of the tail that I was drawn to and I knew that it would sit on the head in such a way that would definitely stand out!
