Barney Bunny

HE WAS DISCOVERED...Thank you Leanne!!
I have another Spring candy cup for sale, Barney Bunny, that will go to the first collector that emails me regarding this post.  I'm not advertising this on Facebook today so it may take a little while for this to be discovered.  Barney is $95 plus shipping and insurance.  If you want this little fellow email me at:

Barney is holding an Easter egg in one hand and is surrounded on the candy cup by eggs about the candy cup body along with a top scalloped border and pastel orbs.  His blue eyes match his bow tie and coordinate with the surrounding blue elements in the cups design.

I hope you are the one to discover this little fellow to add to your Spring collection....they look great with pastel jelly bellies in them!  Just an FYI...these are made of paper mache so they cannot be immersed in water for cleaning.

Good luck!!!

Two New Spring Candy Cups

(Both have sold...thank you so much!!!) Finding time in the studio seems to be an issue for me of late, but I did manage to complete a few candy cups after a recent trip to the Southwest. Yes, warming my bones, touring trading posts and galleries,  and enjoying the unique blend of cultures that area of our country offers was just what the doctor ordered.  It's renewing for me and I'm ready to get back at it!!  

The weather in New Mexico and Arizona reminded me very much of the spring season and influenced my decision to paint two bunny candy cups in pastel colors. Below are Beauregard (Beau) and Benjamin (Ben) Bunny.

The first little candy cup has Beau Bunny holding an Easter egg, painted on a blue background surrounded with pastel orbs in coordinating colors, and a scalloped border encircling the top edge.  The candy cup has a hand-twisted wire handle in an antique brass finish to coordinate with the design.  More views of this candy cup can be found on my Flickr site.

The second candy cup shows Ben Bunny on the front.  Ben sits on a pastel green background shrugging his shoulders at the Easter egg suspended from the scalloped border at top edge of the candy cup.  This candy cup also has an added hand-twisted wire handle in an antique brass finish.

Both cups measure 2.25” to top of the cup (9” to the top of the wire handle) x 2.75” x 2.75”.  The candy cups are made of paper mache and wire and are hand-painted in acrylic paint.  They are then sealed with a matte polymer varnish after they are signed and numbered.

Both candy cups will be available this Sunday, February 10th,  on PFATT Marketplace, at 1 p.m. EST.  Remember to refresh the link to update the page.

Hope you like them!
