'Hand Painted Hummingbird and Ivy Botanical Cast' by Botanical Art by Diane De Roo
This unique piece was cast using an antique jar lid engraved with two exquisite hummingbirds, which I surrounded with intertwining ivy vines. In this version, I have carefully hand-painted the tile to show the gorgeous colours of these lovely birds.
All of my botanical tiles are hand-cast from an original clay mold that I create using flowers from my garden. They reveal many delicate details that often are not noticed in real life - the tiny hairs on a stem, the intricate flower stamens, and pistils, the tracing of veins on a leaf.
As every tile is individually handpainted each one may vary slightly. They come ready to hang. This tile is also available framed in six different colour choices. See the 'Framed Botanicals Casts' collection to see more options.
Medium: Hydrocal, a casting plaster designed to capture fine details
Dimensions: 6" x 6" x 1/2"
