I made this yesterday.  Didn't quite know what category it fit it, so misc it is!


the money shot


different angle

next to a lighter for size reference

I made the tree, nest, and eggs from white sculpy.  Unfortunately the branches drooped in the oven, so I had to break them off and reattach at different angles with wire and superglue.  I stuck my fingers together a lot!!  The flowers were some little silk flowers with wire stems that I wrapped around the branches and also glued.  The whole thing was painted with acrylics.  I really like it!  It's sitting out on the bookshelf in the living room now, and goes very nicely sitting next to a cross stitch of a peacock that I did  (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74998).

That is absolutely gorgeous!  I can't believe how much detail you were able to put into something that tiny-- and the robin eggs are just wonderful.  *clicks the this rocks button*

Thank you!  Unfortunately, I didn't do the tree swap.  I wish that I had, because I really love trees!  I actually haven't done a single swap yet.  :x

I really love this! If you don't want your tree/any other sculptures to wilt you can make a wire or foil armature, or support it in the oven with things like shot glasses or mugs. Also, since white sculpey is super soft you can leach it first by putting it between sheets of paper with something heavy on it over night and this will make it less soft, thus making it wilt less in the oven. I think you did a good job problem solving. I love that polymer clay and super glue are best friends.  Smiley
