One last piece finally finished today and I'm pretty pleased with how his pose turned out, he is supposed to look as though he is swimming draggin a fishing net behind him - hurrah for square tubing and rods!. Yet again I didn't have time to upload work in progress pictures during his creation, but you can see them by clicking here. Click on the photo below to see more shots of the finished piece :)
Another piece finally finished today, everything seems to be taking me a long time at the moment as I'm still not very well - I have something called Erythema Nodosom (an autoimmune problem which hopefully will dissapear soon) which makes me very tired, makes my ankles swell up and all my joints really ache aswell as big painful lumps suddenly appearing on my arms legs. Anyway, to cheer myself up I made a naughty naked male chocolate smeared fairy! He is called 'Chocolat' (pronounced with a very bad French accent....). I had lots of fun making him and also making the chocolates too which are all made from polymer clay. Too see work in progress pics click here.

Well, I started working on this piece back in April, and it seems to have taken forever but I have finally been able to replace the nasty temporary base that I had put him on with a lovely heavy piece of very old welsh oak which suits him much better!

I must be on a roll lol, I've finished yet another piece that had been hanging around for awhile. He is my entry for the International Art Doll Registry March show - Garden and Flower Fairies, so wish me luck!
For anyone wondering who won the last IADR show - the brilliant winning entries were by Larysa Champagne and Ksheyna Nightswood, congratulations to both!

His costume is now complete, the blackberries and leaf and bramble stems are fully removable (they took a fair bit of thought and experimentation to make them so they are durable yet flexible to work as intended). Overall I'm pleased with the result. Just his wings to make now, and I'm currently waiting for some supplies to arrive before I can make a start on them.

No work in progress photos to show as this was abit of a rushed job so I didn't have time. This is my first attempt at a soft bodied doll, and I learn quite alot making it - especially what I would do differently next time! He is gently posable.
As the title says, he is a portrait piece and he was made as a gift for a friend.

I started making a fairy riding a crow quite some time ago - but I kept stopping and starting because I just didn't feel he was right for the piece. Anyway, after sitting on my shelf for ages gathering dust and almost being thrown in the bin, he has finally shown me who he wants to be.... He is almost done - just the base to make as he won't be sitting on the green ball when he is finished.

See what I'm working on and watch how it takes shape from a blob of clay to a finished piece.
