Update as of 112118- I’m not making these very often anymore but there are still some in stock at Kingston Square Arts in Kingston, AR.
These adorable little fairy swing mushrooms are the latest creations from the Wild Ozark studio!
Each of the Fairy Swing Mushrooms are handmade and one of a kind (OOAK).
Rather than painting the caps, this time I decided to use something natural to add the color.
The mushroom caps are polymer clay infused and dusted with powdered sassafras leaf (filet’ gumbo herb) and cinnamon. Follow me on Instagram (@wildozark) to see the new ones as I make them.
The stem is made from an elephant garlic stem.
The fairy swing mushrooms are mounted on a small slab of shagbark hickory. It’s decorated with moss, lichens, dried rabbit tobacco flowers. Two of them have a vine tendril. The swings themselves are made from beebalm flower stems and a bit of leaf or grass for the seat.
Here’s more, colored with cumin and trimmed with sassafras leaf powder.
The ones I haven’t sold yet
will be with me on Saturdays at the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market. If I still have them when I get home, I’ll list them at Etsy and put them in our online shop here on Sunday (or one day soon). They can be shipped. are at Kingston Square Arts until I retire them at the end of this year. Get them while they’re still available and bring a little Wild Ozark nature home with you!
From @cmwhitson: I got mine today, and the photo doesn’t do it justice. This is the cutest little mushroom swing EVER and I truly love it! It’s so delicate and wonderful, and thanks for using biodegradable peanuts to pack it. What an incredible artist you are!! ?
