I finally finished her, my first fairy sculpt. I see so many flaws in her now, but I knew that if I didn't keep going, I would never ever finish a sculpt. I learned so much in her creation, so even though there are so many things I would have done differently or change if I could, I am happy with her. Plus, she is NOT going to become just another UFO under my work table, LOL.
I have started working on a seat for her from a new class by Jean Bernard so the next time you see her she won't be sitting on my tea mug!
I got the tiniest bit carried away with the flame that created the holes in her wings - next time I will try it with my soldering iron. I'm told it's messy, but I don't want such big holes and they appeared literally in an instant.
I need to make a handle for the lantern for her left hand too. She looks a little odd just holding her hand out like that. And... I think I might retouch the paint on her face a bit.
And before I forget, here is the little practice fairy all finished as well. She is so small that even my smallest doll stand is too big to hold her properly. I think she looks relieved to be off of the UFO pile at last!
Wow, two finished dolls in one week. I'm feeling pretty smug today.
