Angel for a day (picture album )

Did I ever tell you that I have a weakness for photography ?? I really like the idea of making one single picture that can say more than thousand words ...It's great to see how a picture can sepak for itself ... I wanted to share the picture album "Angel for a day " which I made last year . I made the pictures with a simple camera (hey Im just an amateur you know hihi )  trying to capture the innocense and pure beauty of an angel ... . The eldest daughter of my sister , Nina (8years old) is the magnifiscent... [Lire la suite]

Message from a fan ...

One of my fairies , the old granny Diva , flew away ..very far away ..all the way to the USA !! You must know I kinda got attached to this old granny fairy so it was pretty hard to let her go ... Its Mrs. Arvita who adopted her and gave my fairy a special place into her home and heart . She was so thrilled having it that she posed for this great picture ... Well , it makes me feel soo good inside knowing that my fairy is being loved so much ...Thanks Arvita for being such fan ànd friend !!!!

WIP 3 "Physalis" / painting + wings + NEW NAME ?

This is my next step : I painted the sleeves in the same color as the dress and the eyes were painted with brown colored gouache paint . I was pretty happy with this result  , but she got ...well, how to say ....very brown huh hhihihih .... To lighten up the overwhelming brown color , I added some tiny golden accents in her hair and gave my fairy some colored wings . These awesome wings were handmade by fairy artist Astrid Mulders (www.fairydreams.nl) . Aren't they great !!!!!!! So that's what she looks like for now ... ... [Lire la suite]

WIP 3 of Fairy "Physalis" / THE BIG CHANGE !!!

Thanks to some great suggestion from other artist friends, I finally decided not to throw away my fairy who really got messed up ...I was afraid to make anymore changes risking to ruin her even more .... I decided to sculpt some sleeves and hair and cure one last time ...yes, the face has "tanned" a bit more but now the color diffrence seems less obvious , with the hair plugs covering the problem areas ....I also decided not to use the physalis fruit parts because they just dont fit ....so this fairy will get a completely...

WIP 2 of "Physalis" / BIG TROUBLE !!!!!!!

I worked further on my newest fairy ..I painted her outfit  with brown acrylic paint ...looks like leather ... And then I added the arms and ears and cured once again  ....and that's when I got into BIG TROUBLE !!!!! Well, you already know that polymer clay may darken a little bit while curing but this time I got a huuuge color difference !!!!!!!  See it ?? I guess that's what you risk if you cure your creation more then once,  building up piece by piece , like I always do ...but hey , its... [Lire la suite]
