I'm rather behind in my uploads. This lil' lady was finished a year ago as a gift for someone very dear; a nearly life-sized clay portrait of a beloved pet guinea pig named Ginger. It surprised me how challenging guinea pig anatomy is to sculpt, possibly because they tend to be so cutely blorb-y. I sculpted a ton of detail into the foot pads, then realized it would need a base to stand on because they would be so fragile under the weight of the body, despite the armature and the foil inside. Everything about this piece was difficult, but in the end the love shows through, and I'm glad I was able to fulfill a wish.
Made from Original Sculpey polymer clay, aluminum foil, wire, acrylic paints, and wood
This was a fun one! It's always fun when someone commissions characters that I love it makes the work so much easier
Used Sculpey III for this and blended the colors myself to get these results. For his nails I used a soft wire, I can't remember exactly what I used. Anyway, I painted his nails after baking. I don't use the Triple Thick Glaze anymore, it has come to my attention that it doesn't last and that makes me sad because I trusted this product to make my figures last. Live and learn I found a new product that works better and cuts my time waaaay down when working on these pieces.
Always, thanks for checking me out and check out my Instagram and follow @karebearkarolina
What? Oshawott! The water starter from the Unova region (5th Gen).
Comments: Woo! I've actually finished a set of something! So Oshawott finishes my set of Unova starters, I'll upload a shot of all three of them together... Snivy is the smallest, haha, but I think I did pretty well with making Oshawott the right size.
I wish the name was Wotter. I really don't know why they chose the name Oshawott. I've heard the theories to the origin of it's name, but come on it feels so weird in my mouth.. oshh-ah-whaaat???
He'll be the subject of my 'Pokemon Figurine Tutorial' it should be uploaded soon. I have some other figurines ready to upload so I might just upload the tutorial during a dry spell or something.
He is 5cm tall, made with polymer clay, painted with acrylics and glazed.
I'd wanted to get a few group shots of the mini-figs made last year, both finished and the naked hot-glue/FIMO embryos, for quite a while now and today I've started to get around to that
If you like the look of these 3-inch little dudes then have a look at my gallery to see 'em all in action!
And a reminder that if anyone reaaaally likes the look of them or would like to commission any in particular, these CAN be for sale, so please feel free and encouraged to just give me a message or a comment and we can work something out These are all currently OOAK's, so if you like 'em, get 'em!
