I held a fun contest last week to find a name for this sweet little Myxie. I got such a great response and she received a fun new name Endora.
|Thank you everyone that participated in our Naming Contest.|
Using polymer clay, I started with her head. The face is usually the most difficult part because you want to get it just right so the personality of your creation shows through. Eyes are first and then the nose and mouth.

After she is completely sculpted, details are painted on her face, body, hands and feet.
For her wings I used skeleton leaves that I glued together and cut into the desired shape. The wings were attached to craft wire and then glitter and feathers were added.
Now she is ready for some clothes and fun hair. For her outfit I used small strips of fabric to fashion a small shirt and skirt. Some reddish yarn/doll hair, combed out, makes for a lovely wild look.
Endora is all finished and ready to frolic in the trees. :)
This sweet Myxie is available on my Etsy store.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed watching Endora come to life.
