Croc Pot

Croc Pot is made out of scrapbook paper except for the eye.  That's made of polymer clay and a little baked on paint.

Paper Honus Wagner

The most valuable baseball card in the world is the Honus Wagner T-206 tobacco card from 1909.  When Honus Wagner sat down for the photo used to produce this card, there was no "Pittsburgh" on his uniform.  That was added later when the famous card was produced.  A near mint card was sold in 2007 for 2.8 million dollars.  My paper sculpture is taken from the original photo and is the size of a modern baseball card.

Paisley Rhino

This is my second paper sculpture made using scrapbook paper.  The eye is a metal rivet and pin, and the horn and toe nail is an exotic wood veneer.

Glorious Scarab

The Glorious Scarab Beetle hails from Arizona in the U.S.  This one got the star treatment with a digital background and the little tree stump is actually a paper cutout.

Paper Wildflowers

These paper wildflowers are very small; they are the same size as a baseball card, 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

Frog Legged Leaf Beetle

Here is another amazing beetle from my collection.  The dent on the wing casings seem to be normal.  There are several frog legged beetles on the internet and they all have the dent.  This colorful beetle was sent to me from Malaysia.
