Sydney's Sculpture

Sydney worked hard to turn her sculpture into more than an ordinary neighborhood.  She was concerned that her work lacked excitement and originality, but all that changed when she added plastic scraps across the sky area.  She also built a picket fence out of popsicle sticks and colored all of these sections with a white oil pastel.  The parts in the sky represent electrical lines, and together with the fence she gives us alot to look at and think about.  Good-bye, neighborhood!  Hello, original ideas!  Problem solved. :)

I LOVE these. What media did you use to paint them and how did you "antique" them? I would love to try this project.

Glad you like this sculpture lesson! It is always a big hit with everyone, but it is a lot of work and takes a good amount of time. Please scroll through the entire section labeled "cityscape sculptures" that details the process to read all about the construction and the materials. Thanks for the feedback!
