She wears a choker corset with a small pair of wings, a crown of black wire and panties. Her skin has a trace of whitepaint as if she wiped most of it off.
I had planned to dress her in a slip and charcoal button up coat ,but ended up leaving her as she is.

Also origianlly I had her with a vintage black phone reciever in her hand. This symbology was lost on some people ,plus her hand wasnt quite making the right pose to hold it so I let go of that theme. However I still really love 1940's noir elements.

Those are cool!
You will probably have to order online ,but there are stores that should be able to ship to you.
I buy from polymerclayexpress.com or clayalley.com. You can also buy from e-bay. or artdolls.com

They have several brands that you can choose from.

Whoa the detail in just marvelous!
Thanks to the close up shot i can see the bones that are part of the hand, plus the knuckles and even the fingernails. The detail you've put into this blows my mind!!

Seriously your work is just amazing, i find it be fact :)

That hand I had to do in stages. I sculpt the basic hand with fingernails cure, then add bones and knuckles in order to have a suport under them. since the fingers are about as thin as angelhair pasta and the hand itself is an inch long. its easy to squish your work without firm suport under there.
This detail level is really demanded in this nitche.OOAK fairy sculpture. collectors expect to see everything! Some dolls have eyelashes and manicured nails! its really kinda insane.

Wire and Clay sculpture?
I would love to watch the wire process of your works...
Carving the clay much be tedious.

Anyway amazing works.
[I was brought here by your DD, congrats on that]

You mean how I made the crown? Or the armature? The clay is sculpted then cured. No carving though I have done that. The clay when cured is hard like a strong plastic. It can be carved pretty easily.
Thanks

Oh ok that makes more sense than what i was talking about.

I just figured you made a wire frame then formed clay around it, cured that, then used carving for the fine details... now that i think about it this seems like that would break in the process of carving.

I don't know much about clay sculpture. lol


Epic work indeed!

I carve sometimes to remove lumps or unwanted surface flaws. Mostly scraping but a little carving too if I want an area thinner. It can break up if your not careful.

This is so beutiful i couldn't believe this is a sculpture, her eyes, her hair the expression so painful oh! I hope i could do something so organic
how did you make it?

Do you mean the process? I make a wire armature , then wrap with aluminum and floral tape. Then I apply the clay. The clay is then fired in an oven.
organic is instinctual for me. Its really hard to do the opposite straight edges and mechanical things

Thank you. You cant see the wire crown in this shot but ,it has long extended feelers with crystal tips that go up. It realy kinda sugests some sort of mental connection devise. Frankenstienish too. my symbology for this was that she was disconnected from communication..the phone wasnt connected to anything and she looks to the sky, crying as if someone she loves is elsewhere. My freind said technology looks out of place in a fantasy peice,but I fealt it expressed the message in a very pure way. Plus I love retro futurism. I might have to make a similar peice with that hand actaully gripping the phone in the right way.
