These are lovely. It is difficult to work smaller but you seem to have mastered it. Great job!
Very sweet nativity…sort of reminds me of the willow tree figurines that are so popular. What a great way to help a child celebrate Christmas! Nice work.
Thanks, was trying for that look 🙂 I started working on a different angel, we will see how it turns out
tamara do you mind sharing how you made these? I would love to try this….thanks!…Debbie
I followed this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNXAJIJkbBo i then formed wings with the wire and attached them, leaving a 1 inch space between the back and the wings, so i could fill it later to stabilize them. Then I used air dried clay to hold them in place . I used tin foil on the armature. I then paper mached it, and then used joint compound over that and sanded it, primed and painted. Hope this helps 🙂 Glad you like them
Forgot to mention, i used tin foil for the blanket, i wrapped it around, used masking tape to secure the folds, i did it as one piece, but on the piece Im working on , i am doing it differently, i will do the blanket separately, finish painting the head, then paint the blanket, then secure, will give it a more finished look , very hard to get into the cracks to paint
correction, paper mache, then sand and prime, then joint compound, sand and prime then paint
