Owls!

Twit Twoo! We love getting commissions here at I Am Acrylic HQ – it’s a real challenge to turn an idea in someone’s head into an actual 3d product, but that’s part of the fun!

Here are two Owl brooches we made at the start of the year – they are for two Brownie leaders; Snowy Owl and Brown Owl!

These side shots show the different layers a bit more clearly:
