I realized I had never embroidered a snail!
Time to remedy that! This just-finished snail embroidery art is my first textile arts piece of 2021. I really wanted to try using pearls and clear and opalescent beads for slime, the way legendary human body embroidery artist Sally Hewett uses them for body fluids.
I think it’s a charming effect, not a patch on the power of the inspiration though.
I had to keep this embroidered White’s Tree Frog under wraps for a while, as it was a commissioned birthday gift!
You can see the process of making him is better documented than usual, as I was sending previews to the commissioner as I worked.
While Littlest Sweet Shop was making my big Rainbow Gay Trans Miniature Treats Party order, she sent me pictures of the process, and I enjoyed it so much I decided to do it myself!
