Storm in a teacup II by hogret Storm in a teacup II by hogret
Diorama in a vintage porcelain teacup.

The waves are crumpled up organza teabags, stiffened initially with white glue, then immersed in layers of blue- and green-tinted resin, splashed with white acrylic paint.

Storm in a teacup II by *hogret is a diorama full of life and personality. It also proposes an ingenious solution to making waves and water, the clever use of the materials makes this a worthy piece. ( Suggested by paper-saints and Featured by Talty )
