Buttons and Beads Cuban Tree Frog

I wasn't satisfied with the first tree frog I made (see earlier post), so I decided to remake it. I used more beads to emphasize the finer details, and I used an air-dry clay recipe (2 parts cornstarch to 1 part white Elmer's glue) to make the gold colored setting for the eyes. I like this frog better, but there is still room for improvement. I will continue to make more animal portraits because it's so much fun to paw through my old beads and buttons to build them. This frog measures about 14 inches long and is for sale at the Bowery Art Gallery in Apalachicola, Florida.
