Matilda, New Lop Rabbit Print by Elizabeth Ruffing

My lop-earred rabbit is painted, printed, and available in our Etsy shop!

The orginal watercolor painting for this print was my first on the Claybord, which made for some interesting effects. The detail that you can add by scratching the surface is great. Using a dental pick and some of the Claybord tools that came in the Claybord toolkit, I was able to add fine lines and textures for the lace trim on her turquoise Victorian dress, and her fuzzy bunny fur. 

I also put together my first video for my new YouTube channel, of myself painting this painting, which you can watch below. Hope you enjoy it!

Transferring my owl

I transferred my owl onto Claybord today. I even filmed myself for the video I plan to make for the painting. It was hard to get myself to do that. It takes away the whole joy of not caring what you look like when you’re working at home. At least it was a short segment!

My bunny was today’s featured listing in the Prim and Whimsy Girls eBay group. I was so surprised this morning to to her furry face looking out at me when I signed in. Thanks, Becky!

I joined the group just recently. You can find members’ eBay listings by searching titles and descriptions on eBay for “PWGL“.

I also joined the Rags to Riches Dolls eBay group recently. You can find those members’ eBay listings by searching titles and descriptions on eBay for “R2RD“.

Here is a close-up of my bunny’s lace collar and trim. I made up some detail shots for my print ad. I’m trying it out on eBay this week, and it will continue to be available on Etsy. This print is available on our Ruffing’s site here. The lace is the part I scratched out of the Claybord with a dental pick and some of the Claybord tools. I’ll be trying this technique while making my owl’s feathers.
