Painted cotton Puffin

Sitting quite happy on his piece of chunky driftwood this puffin is bound to cheer you up. I sculpted him out of cotton and had lots of fun painting him. It's really difficult to try to control how the paint reacts with the damp cotton but he ended up exactly as I wanted, like a watercolour painting on a 3D canvas.

He measures about 34 cm from top to bottom and is a free standing piece.

This is a totally unique, handmade piece of textile art. I cut all my work free hand and without any patterns, it makes work more exciting and the result is always one of a kind. Thank you for looking and let me know if you have any questions. x


I loved making this puffin. I wanted to explore a more free way of painting that I have done in past pieces. By wetting the fabric the right amount and letting the paints run into each other I wanted a watercolour painting effect. I think he turned out lovely :)
