Butterflies for Cosplay
The butterflies I made are sculpted from Fimo polymer clay. The wings are translucent. It took me a few tries to find a method that worked. My first idea was based loosely on making the pieces fit together.
I really enjoyed making these, the experience was great and I now have something new I would add to a mask or possibly a much larger fascinator.
Now for some tiny updates for the moment, I am suffering from a thumb sprain. I injured myself with too much art. I am still taking custom orders this month. turn around time is slightly longer than normal. I am very happy about the new year. I am working on some Maori inspired pieces this month. Once I heal up needle tatting and crochet.
As promised here is a photo of the Project Candy. The necklace features glass pearls, cherry quartz, crystals, sculpted cupcakes and charms.
I will be also updating on Skyrim inspired hat I spent most of last month working on. I have a spectacular Artist lined up for this month's Canvas Chat, the wonderfully talented Heather Ozee. As well as few more of those fantastic December projects and a project close to my heart.
Till next time, keep dreaming big!!!
