1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Unicorn Shadow Box on: May 28, 2015 09:04:52 AM
This is my first shadow box, I had a lot of fun with it. I hope to make a lot more Cheesy

The unicorn was sculpted from polymer clay. The photo doesn't show how sparkly he really is, he is painted in pearlescent paint and iridescent glitter.

I painted the inside of the box to look like a forest, and glued in artificial plants and flowers.

the overall dimensions of the box are
7 in tall
5 in wide
2 in deep

They remind me of the taxidermied mice in the movie Dinner for Schmucks

A true work of art!
They have beautiful patterns and colors.
About how long does it take to make one?

Thank you  Smiley

It has been a while since I have made one, I think that each one took a couple days to complete. Though it goes a lot faster with larger beads Wink
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Sitting Horse on: April 06, 2015 09:42:41 PM
This year I have been working on finishing old projects. I think that may have started sculpting her around 2008 or 2009, and I finished painting her around 2012, so she has been waiting for hair for the last 3 years  Shocked.

Sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture. Painted with acrylic paint. The mane and tail are made from dyed mohair. She is 4 1/2 in tall and 5 1/2 in long.

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Beaded Wooden Eggs on: April 05, 2015 01:44:02 PM
I used a peyote stitch to cover turned wooden eggs with seed beads.  The pink egg isn't quite finished.

I thought that I might have posted these on Craftster before, but I couldn't find them,  Tongue so here are some of the other eggs I have beaded in the past.

The blue and yellow "egg" on the right, is actually a oval shaped rock.

I made some conversation hearts out of polymer clay, and made them into earrings. Cheesy

Thanks for the comments everyone  Grin

Beautiful!  Have you posted your process before?  I would love to see a beginning to end series!  Smiley

No, I haven't really posted the whole process before. I don't really like to take many progress photos anymore, because when sculpture doesn't work out they can become depressing reminders of failed pieces. Sometimes I get near finishing a sculpture, then I decide I don't like it, and end up tearing it apart or starting over completely. Sad

This post has photos of one my old unfinished unicorns tho http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302071.msg3450734#msg3450734
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bowing Unicorn on: January 20, 2015 03:34:58 AM
I finally sculpted a bowing unicorn! Cheesy I had tried so many times to sculpt a unicorn in this pose, but I could never quite get them to look right.

Hand sculpted from polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, no molds were used in the making of this sculpture nor were any made. Hand painted with acrylic paint. The mane is made from Tibetan lambs wool and the tail and feathers (hair near the hooves) are mohair.

He is 4 1/2 in tall at the highest point and about 9 in long.

I love them all.  The one with Santa is my favorite, and the one with the reindeer holding up the clothesline is so cute!  Grin
