I did this for a recent swap, and can't wait to make one for myself! I am so pleased with how she turned out. I was inspired by a tree stump hehehe. I've seen others like her, but I have to say I like how I did mine with the shimmer (Not that I'm bragging LOL, I'm just so proud of her!!) She is hand sculpted from the super sculpy, (the kind that comes in the box that is flesh colored), over a tinfoil base. Then hand painted with acrylics and glazed over with a satin glaze. I used some bronzing fluid in with the paint, to give her a healthy earthy type shimmer. She is about 6 inches high, and about 4 inches wide. Excuse all the pictures I got a bit crazy.
Here is another one of my interpretations of the Goddess of Compassion, Kwan Yin. She is rendered in watercolors, with the metallic pigments for accents. I wish I had gotten a better picture of her, I was pleased with the way she turned out. C&C are welcome!!
I did this for a recent swap. I have loved all the spoon wands that I have seen on here, and it inspired this one! It's for all those projects that you get stuck on. Or for the times that you have no inspiration for a new project. I know that we have all suffered bouts of these blocks... well this is the cure!! Simply take it, do a special dance, wave the wand, and inspiration should come! (You may have to repeat this a couple of times, and a nice glass of wine is recommended as help hehehe) I bought the spoon at our local Ben Franklins. It was already "Blackened" in the spoon part to make it look old. I do not believe it is actually wood. I think it is made out of a poured resin. So, I started with that, used acrylics to paint the tribal Goddess on the spoon part, then put a clear glaze over top to keep it from chipping. Then I gathered up some scraps of yarn and ribbon from one of my Rapunzel scarfs and tied them around. I added some purple beads, and some silver star beads to random strands. After that, I did a little decorative wire wrapping at the base... and voila! The answer to our artistic blocks!! Hope you enjoy, C&C are always welcome!!
I made another Green Man Leaf. I took the advice I got last time and used the super sculpy that comes in the box. It's the kind that is sort of flesh colored. So this one is hand painted with acrylics, and then I used the gold pigment powder to give him shimmer. I then glazed him with the satin sculpy glaze. (I'm so in love with that glaze, it doesn't make everything super shiny.) Wellllll any who, here he is!! Hope you like him, let me know what you think of this one compared to the other. Thanks!!
