Vanessa by Sleetwealth Vanessa by Sleetwealth
Heres my girl completed though Im still tempted to add more feathers and some sapgreen freckling to the shoulders and back. its hard to know when to stop! I decided not to try implanting the hair. Part of me is griping at myself about that.

This isnt the best photo as far as detail. The glare wanted to wash out the front of her face. but the natural light is pretty on the transluent clay.

Well I made one albino fairy here [link]
Id like to use her as a prompt for a larger peice. But usualy the peices I make just happen the way they want. I wish I had more control over it.

she looks great. I understand gluing on the hair how would you implant it and not have it look thin?
Reply
:iconsleetwealth:
Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
Well to implant it you have to leave a strip of clay uncured and use a needle tool to push hair in. To avoid a thin look patiently fill in a few hairs at a time untill it is adequatly thick! Which is why I said to blazes with it!

gaffanon Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2009
wouldn't the hairs get damaged in the firing?
yuck I would screw it up just as I was getting done with it I know I would

:iconsleetwealth:
Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
No because the clay is cured around 275
You also dont want to get hair all over the clay areas that shouldnt have hair on it. But the end result is worth it.

The hair is just glued. I wait till the glue gets tacky and just lay the hair on it and work it with a toothpick in sections.
