Christmas is coming closer ... and this is the first of the three wise men arriving!

I´ve already finished this one last year. Unfortunately this is still the only one.


I made this of fimo soft mixing up a lot of colors.
The red cloak was made of a mixture of the shades -24 and -26 ... this is a very nice blood red - not too dark and not to light.




Underneath I did craft the actual body using normal red. This way Melchior looks chubbier and funnier - just cute! I saw this at some figures you could buy.


The crown was made of a simple flat piece with spikes put together.






I was never really happy with the actual shade of fimo soft gold. So this time I tried something new.
There is some gold powder available that you can mix up with varnish. Then I covered the already baked figure with this and I was really surprised. This looks like real gold to me! I´m still so happy with it and I can really recommend this to you!


I didn´t really have any idea how to make him look like he´s bringing gold. So I sculpt some coins and a necklace. I am not so glad I did sculpt the necklace. What do you think of it? Do you guys have any other ideas?




Have fun !

This is what my nativity set looks now:
