Pod Faerie Baby
Look at what I found while walking through the woods! (oh Rivkah, there are no 'woods' in your neighborhood, just a bunch of buildings and houses, and some stores!) teehee
Okay, I made it. Isn't it cute? The baby is lying in a pod filled with "faerie pearls." (or, more accurately precious fimo!) I find these pod things lying around all over the place, almost all the time. They just lie there on the sidewalk. I think they are kinda cool!
I actually got this idea from Dawn Shiller. She makes these awesome little pod creatures she calls Seidh. I am not sure how large her pods are, but mine are quite small and difficult to sculpt in. Maybe she is more talented than I am, that's definitely possible! Take a look at her work, it is amazing.
Some other time, time I'll give you a tutorial on some techniques I used. Besides sculpting in polymer clay, I discovered interesting things about these pods themselves. I used Genesis paint, and I really think there needs to be a tutorial out there on how to use it ... I had to teach myself to use these paints as they are a bit 'different.'
