The honeycomb is 5 layers and the bee is 2 layers. I had tested it on cardboard before cutting out of wood and wound up loving the cardboard. I cut a larger one and glued it up and plan on hanging it. The last photo is the larger one. I think it is around 16 inches long if I remember correctly. I want to play with more cardboard now.
This is really lovely! There are so many ways to use different colors and materials with this.
I love how much depth appears in the honeycomb. I’d be proud to have that on my wall.
Great depth! Planning on painting it?
I love it! Looks great in cardboard and would translate well into other materials too.
Definitely worth keeping!
Thanks all! I am not planning on painting it as I have glued it already and actually like the “natural” look of the cardboard. I do plan on trying it in either wood stained or colored acrylic at some point.
That looks great! My husband has some bees so i may need to try something like that
Such a cool piece! The texture and color, I really like how the use of such a common disposable material works so well in art!
I love bees, those little ladies work themselves to death. Our destinies are inexorably intertwined. I would be proud to display that!
This looks lovely in carboard. So simple and clean.
Looks fantastic in cardboard!
Cardboard can be so much fun, and very inexpensive if anything ever goes wrong! I love prototyping with cardboard!
I think cardboard is highly under used, and that it looks quite nice. Your project is a prime example of that. Well done!
You might like this video, of a beekeeper transporting a colony. How does he not get tickled?
What a nice 3D effect!
Haha! There’s a man that knows them well. That guy was as safe walking down the street as he would be with an open carry! They really are docile sweethearts - unless they detect a threat. I would like to see how he got to the queen without interference!
Wonderful depth. Cardboard looks like your new best friend.
This is so cool. I keep bees. I’d love to make a design like this to add to the sides of the brood boxes. Thank you so much for sharing.
Very nice format and a great piece!
