Custom Sculptures make Great Christmas Gifts!

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas and got lots of fun gifts from Santa! :)
I had a very busy season, I received so many custom sculpture requests, I was working almost all of November and December. But I was super pleased with how the commissions turned out so I wanted to share a few pieces with you all.
I made several Christmas Ornaments.



Gingerbread Turtle ornament.

I did some Christmas themed pets. 
Some Dragon Pals with fun personalities, along with some sewing themed mice. 

And who doesn't love Disney Themed Art! These where some of my favorite pieces to make this year. 


I had so much fun creating such unique sculptures for creative people. I can't wait to see what requests I get next year. Happy New Year Everyone!

Gingerbread Cookies Anyone?!

It's that time of year again, time for my Annual Christmas Myxie(mystic pixie) Ornament. Number Five.
Annual Christmas Myxie ornaments 2013-2016
This year's Christmas Myxie Ornament is gingerbread themed. I had a great time making little gingerbread men cookies to accessorize her out fit.

Can't eat these tasty looking treats. 
For the Myxie, I usually start off by forming a wire frame, sort of like a skeleton for a sculpture. Then I start sculpting the torso from the shoulders to the knees around the wire. Then I sculpt the legs from the knee down, feet and arms to the elbow, these are then added to the torso.
I usually sculpt the head and face next, attaching the head to the wire frame and sculpting the neck, forearms and hands last.
Here's some fun collages I put together to show my hand and feet sculpting process.

Now my piece is completely sculpted, time to paint the details to my Gingerbread Myxie.
Can't forget to paint her sweet tiny shoes.

I hand sew each tiny garment. Hand crafting her a perfect outfit to match her personality and theme.
After finishing her clothes, I give this bald little darling some hair. I add the polymer clay gingerbread cookies and some fun candies to her hair-do.
Now she is ready for her frosted wings, I specially handcraft them for her using craft wire, plastic and some polymer clay made to look like icing adds the finishing touch.



Lastly I sculpt her a little wooden spoon with some icing on it for her to hold. 
ALL DONE! The 5th annual Christmas Myxie ornament is complete and looking festive...and tasty. :)







This beautiful piece is available on my Etsy store.

Here's a fun blog on my process for the Myxie ornament from 2016.
