Blue Diamond is finished!
She’s almost 9 inches tall and has about 5 points of articulation.
Materials used: floral wire, polymer clay, gloss varnish, acrylic paint, yarn, material and thread, textile medium, a fake gem, and LOTS of glue. She is hand-sculpted, no molds used.
>take note of her tears! They’re my favorite part.
My photography doesn’t do her justice. She is more detailed in person. Unfortunately, I am not an experienced photographer.
I made some polymer. It’s green from the CuBr catalyst. After I collected the solid by centrifugation, I put it under vacuum to dry. It puffs because the diethyl ether trapped inside it is boiling in the vacuum.
**The pieces of granite are carefully selected by my dog and brought home from his walks, (not sure why he favours granite!) disinfected and sealed in with the clay. He’s a good pupper, helping with my art :D**
