New Fantasy Fairy Wings

My new fantasy fairy wings, started work on them late last night and finished them off this morning.  They turned out better then i thought they would.  The orange pair have inspired me to sculpted a Carnevale di Venezia (Carnival of Venice) Art Doll.


These wings are currently up on My Ebay

Finishing Bambleroot

Back to work on my little Bambleroot.
His limbs have been glued into place, then wiped down with some acetone to clean them.  Then he is painted. For this little one I have used acrylic paints.

Once the paint is dry he is wraped with polyfill and costumed. I love to use earthy tones like browns and greens on my treeroot pixies, I have several boxes in my workroom just filled with bits of material to play with, the suede like fabric on this pixie is one of my favourites.

He is wigged using offcuts of the fur i used on his back, then given a bit of a hair/fur cut to tidy him up.  He is posed and the book i made for him is then glued into his hands.

A little gloss lacquer on his eyes and nails and he is finished!

As I was getting ready to start my new doll, I saw my little Bambleroot pixie sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be completed.  So I desided to get him finished before I started my first mermaid art doll.

I had already sculpted his head several days ago, so all I had to do was give it a few touch-ups and  it was done.

Sculpting hands is one of my favourite things, from my large fairies down to my tiny pixies.  They turned out quite well, as I was sculpting them I decided to have him sitting and holding an open book on his lap.

 Such large feet for such a tiny pixie, just need to stamp them then they are done!

The little book was fun to make, this would be the first open book i have made.  I cut some paper and made 5 signatures and glued them together added a ribbon and then glued the pages into a clay book cover then baked. 

 The first one turned out to big for the little guy...... so i had to make another one...

He is all baked now and ready to be painted, he is starting to come together very nicely.  I will start the painting and costuming tomorrow, till then...
