This is a polymer clay flatback sculpture of Discord from My little Pony Friendship is Magic. I made 3D polymer clay elements. mounted to the frame and all but the background behind Discord is painted with acrylic paint and varnished to keep safe. The background behind and the platform he is standing on is made of really thick watercolor paper that is painted with watercolors. He's secured to it and its secured to the shadow box. Cheesy

I love discord he is easily one of my favorite "bad guys"

I dont know what to do with him yet I just wanted the fun of making him Smiley

The last is like the first but just to show the glass in the frame i guess LOL

Very nice!!  Love the shadowbox itself, and the the bas relief clay on the frame and paper backing.  Nice colors and whimsy too, and I'm always inspired by mixed media like your painting along with the clay.

You could always put it on the wall or on a small easel (how big is it anyway?), or use as a box lid or something.

Let us see more!

thank you! I didnt see that there was a reply till today! OOPS! it is 9 by 9 inches wide on the front outer frame. I didnt get depth dimensions and I forgot to measure the inside box part that sticks out behind the frame its only as big as the window. I just made him to go on the wall because the way it is shaped with the set in box in the back thats smaller its sort of awkward to try to stand up and sets kinda deep for using as a lid though that is an awesome idea! Or another idea I had would be using several attached to create a table top maybe.. So many possibilities! Cheesy
