Nothing's cuter than a sloth! This is an original bas relief sculpture of a Three-toed Sloth. The sloth and his bamboo branch were sculpted using Super Sculpey polymer clay, no molds were used. The sculpture was hand painted with acrylic paints; polycrylic coating was added as the final step for protection and to bring out the vibrancy of the paints. The finished sculpture is permanently attached to a basswood plank and is ready for hanging in a favorite location.
