Harry Potter Wire Sculpter

I made some wire sculpures in art and just got them back today. I've done wire sculpture in the past but then the wire was about three times thinner. MY GOD this was so hard to work with! I made a Golden Snitch from Harry Potter as my main project but finished with a few days left so I made a Harry Potter book. 
 The Snitch was supposed to be life size (much smaller than it turned out) but I'm not to bright and so i started the sphere as big as it would be life size but it just grew and grew... (Looks a bit like a girl with pig tails)
 This picture is kind of blurry but I made swirls to mimic the designs on the actual snitch best I could with the wire. For the wings I tried to make the individual feather like structures but that was driving me nuts and was not working. Instead I used multiple pieces of wire to look like it's moving.

 The book was made quite quickly as just a sort of side project so it's not so good. I manly like the letters that I painted with nail polish so they would stand out against the black wire of the cover. I used just single wires for the pages to make them look thin.

Pink Painting

Finally painted this for my bathroom. I've wanted some art in there since we redid it in the summer. I got the idea from a magazine... not sure what magazine though.
Basically just draw on the lines and then use a color on the bottom and add a bit more white to the paint for each layer above.
I'm probably just to lazy to do another coat but i kind of like how the paint isn't completely solid in each block and that its a bit streaky.

Happy Easter/ Birthday

Yesterday my friend had a birthday party. I love this floral wrapping paper so I went a little overboard with it, using it for the card and a bookmark. I got her three books, Rot & Ruin, The Maze Runner and Going Bovine. I find it a bit amusing how the gift looks very girly but the books are completely the opposite...

And Happy Easter!
