Sculpt is finished

Well, I think she's finished! I trimmed her hat with apoxie roses and some beads on the other side. I dyed a silk rose and gave it a coat of PearlEx gold interference and varnish...that's at her waist or thereabouts. She looks very demure, but I think she must be pretty bold to wear that LOW cut gown, don't you?

Candlestick sculpt progress

I had fun dyeing fabric and playing with Paverpol and now she is dressed and waiting for embellishment. I'll use some Apoxie and beads for that I think, and maybe some natural materials.....we'll see what she demands!

Fairy bust painted

Now she has her gold paint and texturizing medium, plus a little black shading which doesn't show in the picture, but makes a big difference in real life. Now she'll get a bit more paint colors here and there, a little sanding, and some Paverpol draping. Plus wings, eventually! (They may take awhile)

WIP Fairy Bust

This is my work in progress from Jean Bernard's online class. The head is sculpted from Jean's "Mother" mask mold, and the body is sculpted from Apoxie Sculpt clay. It sits on a wooden candlestick embellished with more apoxie and will be painted gold and further embellished with texturizing medium and draperies soaked in Paverpol. Way too much fun! Jean is a delightful, generous teacher and her classes are always intriguing. I work WAY out of my box learning her techniques!

Round Robin

Now there's something in this post Katie! *smile* I had to learn how to post photos.....again. This is the cover of a journal for a new round robin I'm involved in with 7 friends. We each made a head and torso of a doll, or some semblance thereof and will send it off with the journal to the others to add to and embellish to their hearts content. It's always fun to see what comes home again at the end!
