heat gun is such a cool sculpting tool !!!!

Ok , a heat gun is normally used for embossing but this great tool is also great for making dolls . let me explain how it works (for me :-))  : When I make complex sculptures I need to work in several stages  and every stage needs to be baked off so it would not collapse while sculpting on it ...and sometimes its just for baking a single leg ..what a waist of time and energy . Well, the heat gun gives you the possibilty to bake off a a precise spot without using the oven and allows you to bake the arm you just... [Lire la suite]

I've been inspired by the beautifyl "captured fairies in glass jar " which are fairy sceneries made from paper and put into a glass jar. Well, this is my version .. I will use a flatt picture frame with glass instead of the traditional  . First , you must take quiet some time to search for good pictures into magazines or any other book you want ...but that's something I like doing hihih so I don't... [Lire la suite]
