ooak polymer clay Ice Fairy
ok since people are asking....she is made from a blend of natural puppen fimo, white fimo soft, translucent fimo soft and just a tiny bit of blue fimo soft. its a custom blend so Ill never get the same shade again. She has an intertal wire armature. that the clay is sculpted over and she has a metal tube in her leg to stand her up. Her inset eyes are hand made by a very talented artist in italy. Her eye lashes are bits of white ostrich feathers. Her hair is silk roving. its very fine and soft and it tends to go everywhere when you are trying to work with it. I use fabritac to glue it down in many small layers. She is painted with acrylics and artists chalks and her eyes lips and fingernails are sealed with judikins gloss to make then shine. Her clothing is a mix of various micro beads, glitter and organza. Her wings are white wire and angeline film. Her base is actually a candle holder I found at Michaels I filled it with resin to hold the rod that goes into the tube in her leg.
as far as my sculpting process goes I start with the head first then I bake it in my little toaster oven @250F for about 12 mins then I do the torso and bake the same way. then the legs, bake, then the arms and bake. then she goes into the standard kitchen oven @265F for 45 mins.
I dont really like sculpting over foil so all my amtures have the big parts of the body in super sculpy fully cured to take up the density and make the final cure time shorter so nothing burns.
Ive also come to the conclusion that polymers dont like humidity. the wetter it is the more likely you are to get moonies in your polymer clay and bubbles in your resin. I run a dehumidifier in my workshop at all times.
