A set of three handmade metallic paper mache accent fruits. I hand sculpted this set (including a pear and two apples) from a papier mache pulp of salvaged papers, then painted them in a series of different shades of rustic metallic gold with dark brown distressing. Extensive sanding prior to painting created the super-smooth surfaces that contribute to the sophisticated look of these sculptures. A random, artifact-inspired handpainted pattern contributes to the aged effect.
A great accent for home, office, library, or wherever you want a splash of color and style. Give them a home in a bowl, on a ledge, bookshelf, or wherever you like.
Made from a papier mache pulp of newspaper, junk mail, and other recyclable paper, these spheres are lightweight, yet hard and sturdy. This set arrives packaged nicely and makes a great gift for yourself or someone else!
*For decor purposes only. Not recommended for houses with small (or large) children of the furry or human kind, as these are very tempting to throw and play with! Non-breakable, but since papier mache pulp dries to such a hard surface, these are capable of breaking other things! Treated with several coats of sealant, keep exposure to moisture to a minimum. Wipe clean with a damp cloth, use no cleaning agents.
**You will receive the 2 apples and 1 pear shown. Other items pictured are for example only, not included.
Colors: antique gold, limeade green
Measurements: apples: approximately 3.5in x 4in (10cm x 9cm) pear: 4inx5in (10cm x 13cm)
Recycling and conservation is important to me. Unless otherwise indicated, ALL of my papier mache items are made from recycled paper and other reclaimed materials, not preshredded storebought mache.
