Beehive made from a mix of materials : 

Honeycomb: Clear casting resin with paper bee’s and oil paint for the honey kind of tint. (It’s not the most eco friendly thing I have made but I’m hoping that I can find less harmful materials for future work.)

Base : Latex, it’s taking a very longtime for the latex to set but when it’s fully set it won’t be white at the bottom it will be a similar colour to the honeycomb.

Hive : The hive is made from hessian rope which I hand stitched together, it was pretty painful but I wanted it to look like a skep hive.
