Keelia ~ Spring Teacup Fairy

A few weeks back I was looking around in St Vinnies op shop and found three teacups, I bought all 3 of them and they have been sitting on a shelf in the kitchen ever since then waiting for me to start sculpting their fairies..

Something new again, for my teacup fay I decided to try a different way of sculpting the limbs.  After sculpting the head and body I blushed her with dry chalks then she was backed. Once she cooled I started on her limbs, I sculpted core pieces for her thighs and legs and for her arms and forearms, this made it easy for me to play around with her pose till I was satisfied.

...and more wings

I have had alot of fun making these wings, they have sparked so many ideas for my Fay art dolls.  I am going to take a few days off from wing making again to start on some new little and not so little dolls. 
I really love making my wings so to keep things even I will be making wings 2 days out of every week and the rest of the time will be for my Art dolls.

So many ideas and so little time...

Four New Transparent Wings

It has been some time now since I last made my OOAK fairy wings, I have been (not so patiently) waiting for my filigree and Angelina Film to arrive from the US so that I could start making them. My Film arrived last week and yesterday afternoon when I went down to the post office my filigree were sitting there waiting for me!! So I have been busy creating!!

I have one more set of transparent wings to finish off and then I will start on my Angelina Film wings.


Check out my wings on ebay!

Grandma Burrow

I finally finished off my Grandpixie and the two little ones today.  Grandma Burrow turned out far better then I had hoped.

Meet Grandma Burrow, Turfee Burrow and (baby) Wee Burrow

I still have to paint my berry picker and dress her, I have some berries (blackberries and raspberries) that I had made up some time ago, not sure if they will be the right size but we shall see.

Berries and Babies Continued

My two little baby pixies have turned into one baby and one toddler, they have both been baked and have come out really well.  The boots for the berry picker and grandpixie are being baked at the moment, once they are cool I will give the pixies a touch-up with paint and start on their outfits.

Berries! and Babies!

I started work on two little female pixies this afternoon.  The first is to be a young berry picker, and the other an old grandpixie with two baby pixies.

Their faces are completed as well as the grandpixies hands, I just have to finish the berry pickers hands and start work on their shoes and the baby pixies!! but that is for tomorrow.

The Mushroom Picker

His name is Marul Muddle Burrow and he is all finished. 

I have decided to keep this little one. I have very few of my treeroot pixies and he is so sweet that I just can't bring myself to sell him.

And you are..?

My internet has been down for a day and a half so I have been sitting in my studio 'playing with the fairies'
This little one has been stuck in my head for a few days now, he talks a lot..quite a lot..  I have yet to catch his name.

I decided to blush this little one with my dry chalks before he was baked, the colours become slightly transparent afterwards which gives a  more fay look.

While he was baking.... I started on a new little one, a sweet gentle little pixie who loves to pick mushrooms. I am not sure if these two know each other.. but I do remember my little chatterbox mentioning something about a shroom ?

His hands have been sculpted and his fingers wraped around the basked handle. All blushed and he is now ready to be baked.

My little mushrooms, they are maddening to make but so very cute.

And you are...? Well this little one is Jest Thwop Dabble, Adventurer, explorer and fortune hunter... Well thats what he tells me anyway.

I am about to fall asleep in my chair.... so I will finish my mushroom picker tomorrow..sleepy so very sleepy..
