3D Paper Sculpture of Whimsical Carrots for Your Kitchen


Ask a question

These larger than life 3D Carrots are full of color and make a bold, whimsical statement in any room, but especially in a kitchen. These are carrots anyone would love but especially someone who loves to cook!

The Carrots are made from acid free duplex stock paper. Each piece of paper is cut out with an X-Acto knife and then painted with gouache paint on all sides including the edges of the paper. Each individual piece must throughly dry and then be burnished with a bone burnishing tool to the correct shape. That piece is then glued down on the acid free background which is also painted with gouache and the next layer is started on. Each piece has to dry in the correct position before the next can be placed.

The 13" x 22" paper sculpture is framed in a wooden shadow box frame with glass siliconed into place to act as a barrier to humidity and the environment. A bit of glare is on the glass when I photographed the piece.

The Carrots are more than 2" deep so they create different shadows as the light changes in the room they are displayed in during the day.

Thank you for looking!
