A few months ago I started a polymer clay pixie or elf, inspired by a site that I stumbled upon.  Now I can't find it!  The artist made fantastic little sculptures, and she had a tutorial showing how to make an elf (or maybe she called them pixies).  She started out with the wire armature, went on to show how to make the head and face, then the body and limbs.  My little guy has his head and body, but wires sticking out for arms and legs.  Does anyone know the site I'm talking about, or the name of the artist?  I have a feeling she has removed her lessons because I've searched and searched and can't find it.

Thanks polyclay artists!

I don't know which particular lesson you're talking about, but since you've gotten most of the figure done, you should be able to get the rest from other lessons on using a wire armature under a polymer clay figure.  So check out the many lessons on these pages at my site (maybe the one you're looking for will even be among them):

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/armatures-perm.htm
(...click on Wire & Other Materials ...)

http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpture.htm
(...click on Websites, then look at the various lessons using wire)


HTH,

Diane B, thank you so much!  Your site is wonderful, and I found the one I was searching for using one of your links.  ( http://www.woodlandwhispers.com/ )  I'm sure that I could have used one of the many tutorials on your site with good results and I plan to go back and explore it further.  I've had an interest in polymer clay for a long time, but haven't really pursued it.  Thanks for all the inspiration!

Oh good... I'm sure you'd rather have had the original one that a different one, and it was still online!

Cool, go for it!!!  Grin   Is it primarily sculpting that you're interested in, or all the rest of it too??  (If it is primarily sculpting, be sure to check out some of the online sculpting groups listed on the main Sculpting page).

I'm interested in all aspects of polymer clay.  I enjoy beading, and I like the idea of being able to create unusual beads or other items to incorporate into a piece.  I saw the fantastic little figures on the Woodland Whispers site, and the tutorial looked easy to follow, so I gave it a try.  I don't have her talent, but it's fun anyway.  I'm sure your site (and the new board here) will be really helpful as I attempt to learn about polymer clay--thanks!
