I always think the first time I make something, that one is the best, no matter how hard I try to duplicate or make it better, that first one was best. But the hummingbird I did a few weeks was really just fallout from a failed crow, so I pretty much knew I was going to be making a better hummingbird and I think I was right! And besides, anytime I can add purple to something, it's better by default isn't it? So this is the new steampunk hummingbird, I really am so pleased with how it turned out.

Oooh, I love the titanium effect of the colours! What did you use to get the metallic look, was it mica powder/pigments? Whatever it was, the end result is amazing, and yes, purple always adds awesomeness Grin

Hi All, this is one busy forum isn't it? I'm a polymer clay artist making mostly pendants....for now anyways, I'll venture out into other things more soon I think. My pieces are entirely unique and original. This steampunk hummingbird pendant was entirely hand sculpted from black polymer clay, embellished with watch gears, and highlighted with mica powders and metallic wax. I think he rocks  Grin
