This Ecofriendly Sea Turtle Ornament is unique and earth friendly. Add one to a gift bag for your Turtle loving friend. Tie one around a wine bottle for the perfect hostess gift. It makes an adorable Wedding centerpiece for your special day. And of course, hang one on your Christmas tree! A blank recycled paper card is attached.
The Sea Turtle is crafted from recycled paper clay I make using high quality and durable ingredients. I start with recycled paper (office paper, junk mail), shred it then pour boiling water over it. After two days, the recycled paper (now pulp) is poured into a muslin cloth and allowed to drain. I mix the pulp with PVA glue and stabilizers. The clay is rolled flat and I hand cut and form each piece. After drying, the Turtles are sanded, painted a primary color, then painted by hand with colorful acrylic paint. They are finished with a uv resistant gloss varnish.
The Sea Turtle is strung on a 11 inch piece of hemp (5.5 inch tie)
The Sea Turtle measures approximately 3 inches by X 2 1/2 inches.
