Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge And Design Team Call

well hello everyone i thought i would try something different today i am entering the Lindy's Stamp Gang Colour Challenge and also entering my project as my design team call entry.

well i have always been interested in faeries so i thought i would sculpt one from polymer clay.
i have worked with polymer clay before for miniature dolls house food but i did do some sculpting at art school.
This months challenge was to use a minimum of 2 of the colours shown in the inspiration image

so i did the following

i used a wire armature and covered it in clay building up the areas as i went

her hair is Tibetan lambs wool

i used fabric glue to glue her hair and clothes on and i painted her face and eyes with acrylic paint and then used glossy accents for the glaze

i coloured the lace with tiffanylou blue and heliotrope purple plum. i sprayed her skin and lace clothing with scintillating silver and i used desert moon turquoise on her wings
i apologise for her face see needs a lot of work but i think i did well for my first attempt

i hope you all enjoy my first attempt at a sculpted clay doll and i hope to be doing more in the future

please head on over to Lindy's Stamp Gang and pick up some great product not only do they sell the sprays and embossing powders they all so sell magical micas, charms, try me sets, stamps and wooden die cuts.
they have a wonderful team working for them and awesome customer service
