Testing Mercury!

Took my lunch break from work today to test out my idea for the first planet, Mercury! My original idea was to use snail shells, but after coming across these colored pebbles at the park where I was doing it – I was instantly drawn to the idea of separating out the white and red pebbles to form the “planet”. Even at its small size, this was very tedious and took up my entire lunchtime! I’m definitely happy with where it’s going, but am going to play around more with the snail shells too. I’m thinking of trying them on top of the red pebbles, and also of having more – as I don’t think I had quite enough this first time to make it work. I will also try a version with all small shells, as the larger ones made it difficult to get the circle perfectly round. Any other ideas out there? =)

    I love them both, but there is something special about the organic snail shells against the dark soil….!
