this was based on one of my swap partner's pins. im still learning how to sculpt and i find it hard to think it 3d
but im really peased with how this came out. she sits about 5 inches high and is sculpted from polymer clay and painted with acrylic paints and a hint of mica powder then finished with satin varnish. i wanted a mottled paint effect so i used my finger, rubbing the paint until it was almost dry and dabbing it over the clay. i used a wash of dark brown to get into the details and then went over again, dabbing with the paint to highlight it. the eyes were given a coat of gloss varnish over black paint to bring them to life
i forgot to take any wip pic until i had almost finished the sculpting
i used scrap clay covered with a thin layer of white mixed with translucent clay for the body, i had used dark scrap clay for sculpting before and it can be hard to cover even with good quality acrylics hence the thin layer of white, it makes the painting easier
the tali i simply used dark blue scrap clay since the colour was close to what i wanted to paint it.
i proped up the head and ears with cotton wool pads during baking to prevent them drooping.
