Squirtle's family line.



Soooooo much fun to make,soooo much...i'm gonna....just.....feel....

Ahem ya I just had a lot of fun and stuff with this. The only thing I don't think is perfect is blastoise's eyes, everything else is 100% accurate, because I made bloody sure of it :)
Yeah so I was asked to make the squirtle evolution line and was given pretty much free range with the poses and stuff. The sizes of the piece were as requested. I think at its tallest it was around 5 inches or maybe six. So squirtle and wartortle were pretty small and yet I packed in all the details, because I'd be damned if they weren't perfect.
Used a mix of sculpey and epoxy resin clay to give maximum strength, over a foil and wire armature.
The base was painted a metallic golden yellow with dabs of metallic orange to look like sand, and there is a watery splash effect beside squirtle, wartortle and being splashed up by blastoise's foot. they were painted metallic selver, then went over with translucent glass paint to give a lovely glossy watery finish. And then I made feckin shit tonnes of tiny bubbles out of apoxy and attached them....individually around the piece....not fun bit. THe whole piece was hand painted and is my best and by far most complicated piece to date. The whole thing was sealed with fimo semi-gloss, because i cant find spray matte varnish in Ireland, and their eyes and the water and bubbles were varnished with gloss to complete the lovely shine. 

SO yeah, open for commissions.
