Wooden Dolphin Magnet #6

Wooden Dolphin Magnet 006 - Beach - Martha Bechtel - Front Shiny

Some dolphins hang out in the deep blue sea, but this little gal is chilling along the shore!

Unlike her fantasy-flavored cousins this little landscape dolphin is all about bringing a bit of calm to your office or kitchen (or other magnet-friendly abode).

So sit back, relax, and let the beach hold up those important papers while you take five… or maybe twenty.

This fine finned wonder was painted in acrylics and then finished off with a layer of sand (alas, not true beach sand) to give her some depth. Everything has been well sealed and the ocean has been glossed, so the sand is sturdy– but please don’t try and take her for a swim! 😉

I had a bit of trouble capturing the blues and greens with the camera, but I think the various photos give a good idea of how the color will look under different lights.

Finished off in several layers of gloss sealer on the front and matte on the back, this little magnet is water-resistant, not water-proof. You can wipe it off with a damp sponge, but don’t let it go for a swim!

The ArtMinds Wooden Dolphins are made from plywood and are roughly 4 inches long by 2.25 inches high. They have one strip of flat magnet on the back that will hold them securely in place on the fridge.

This dolphin was started in September and finished in October of 2016.
