WIP of Lady BIJOU

  Hello dear friends, After two full years I finally picked up my courage and my clay !! I start off making creations as gifts and “give aways” before I start selling or exposing anything . I’m very happy with my never-ending imagination and unique style but my sculpting level could get better . So this year will be a learning process in which I hope I will get better sculpting results and get that peace of mind and body I’m still searching for . OK, stop talking and start sculpting ahhahaha . As usual, I start with the... [Lire la suite]

Dryad WIP

hello !!! I wanted to show you someting Ive been working a few months ago but I still need to finish it . I made a polymer clay figure on a piece of wood . It represents a "dryad" or wood spirit" .    Afterwards I will paint it with acrylics . I wanted to use antique patina , but Im afraid it will react chemically with the polymer clay ...   And then,  I will fix the creation  on a fine metal stick so it can be posed ... thanks for watching !!!

wip of "ukkipukkie"

hello everybody . As you know Im making some new fairies for my upcoming expo but as I dont have much time I dont make very sofisticated or time consuming things. This new creation is an "ukkipukki" , a child from the gnome family that is sleeping in a tiny coffee cup . Because coffee is black I made a "black" version of the ukkipukkie hihih .. You can only see the arms and head but I did make the complete (yet very basic) body put inside the cup ...I didnt want to be too cheap or too lazy  hihihihihi This is how she looked...

WIP bluette

Ive been trying to speed up my sculpting because of TROLLS & LEGENDS coming up so I though I'd start with two fairies on a tile (to hang on your wall)  . I used scrap pieces of ceramic tiles as base for he following fairy : I sculpted and cured in several times ... I painted the stockings before adding the arms . The wings made of wire dipped in some "dip it fantasy film resin (http://www.clayalley.com/dipit.htm). Afterwards I painted them with blue gouache paint and glitter .     ... [Lire la suite]
