Details

The Green Man of Celtic mythology is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth and represents the cycle of growth each Spring. This Green Man pendant was sculpted by hand from green Premo polymer clay. Textured leaves cover his face, which was sculpted on to a piece of clay in shades of brown made to resemble tree bark. Before baking I applied a mix of green, gold, and blue green Pearl Ex powders for a lovely and unique iridescent shimmer. I painted the Green Man's eyes with acrylic paint and sealed the pendant with high gloss varnish. I inserted a twisted green wire into the clay before baking and added liquid polymer clay to guarantee that the wire won't pull out. This pendant measures 2 inches tall and 2 inches wide.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This pendant was created as an entry in the Polymer clay Smooshers guild's Celtic Challenge. I've always liked the Green Man and what he symbolizes, and I've wanted to sculpt him for some time now. The challenge gave me the perfect reason to finally create him ;-)
