Hello everyone!
Meet Ophelia the miniature lamb!

Screen Shot 2015-11-08 at 4.29.16 PM

This little bundle of joy is super sweet and cuddly. Her wool is faux and her head and cloven hooves are hand sculpted and hand painted.  Ophelia is approximately 5 inches long and 4 inches tall.

Tornado the Storm Phoenix hatchling

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the silence! I have been really busy! However, my mind is filled up with fresh ideas again! (I have plenty of new sculpts on the table!)

Screen Shot 2015-11-08 at 5.16.15 PM

This weekend I completed a stunning Storm Phoenix! His neck is poseable and the body is very soft. He also has a bit of realistic weight added to him. He is truly a gorgeous, one of a kind bird!

Screen Shot 2015-11-08 at 5.13.31 PMScreen Shot 2015-11-08 at 5.14.35 PM

Tornado’s head and feet are completely hand sculpted and painted.  To add more security when he is perched on a human’s hand, he also has a set of colorful jesses.

I hope you enjoy Tornado the Storm Phoenix hatchling!

Dragons, Dragons, and more Dragons!!

Hello Again Everyone!

I have finally completed my newest clutch of dragons! Don’t let their small size fool you! Some are rather vicious with strangers…

Twilight, my largest dragon,  laid the clutch a few days ago and has been taking care of these little beasts marvelously. She is pretty patient but they can drive her a bit crazy, as you can imagine.

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 5.57.28 PM

Ok let me introduce them to you!

First up Cumulous! This little guy is very energetic and is also very playful… well … only when he gets to know you well. He can form clouds in which he loves to frolic in.

Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 8.10.10 PM              Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 10.22.58 AM   Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 5.55.13 PM                Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 6.00.52 PM

Next, we have Thor! This little dragon looks so vicious with his underbite, that he looks adorable!  Twilight passed a mysterious wing trait to him so he looks super cool.  He can be super cuddly but also super mean , like his brother.

And now we have Loki! This little guy has a venomous bite but is pretty sweet towards me.  However ,he is VERY reserved around strangers (and cameras). His only human friend is me. Basically, he is a little body guard.

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 6.02.20 PM                   Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 5.59.40 PM

And the most Majestic  one of them all is Ravenclaw. She has the mysterious wing trait like Thor and beautiful plumes of royal blue and jet black on her tail and wings. Her temperament is rather peaceful compared to her brothers.

Hope you enjoyed meeting these special hatchlings!

A Fawn named Punkin & Fantasy Fox Update

Hello again!

Remember the Fantasy Fox? Well, I decided to name him “Timber”. Timber is still patiently awaiting his furever home on eBay!

……And we have a NEW arrival!The teacup fawn, “Punkin” is a Pudu , Muntjac deer cross (from my imagination)

Isn’t he adorable?!! I will most likely be making fawns similar to Punkin and they will (if all goes well) be up for adoption!

PS: I have finally completed my warthog mold! More info on that soon!

Hi everyone I am back!

Hello all,

After a very long break I am finally back! I have made up my mind to make molds of some of my creations so I can make copies of them!  I have used “Amazing Mold Rubber”    for my molding material. It has pleased me greatly! It solidified at the amount of time the instructions said it would too!  Unfortunately after making a test mold, I was only able to make half of a “real” mold. I bought some more and its on its way! Here is a photo of my “real” mold (you get to see the sneak peak of my warthog project):

I hope you guys enjoyed this update after a long absence!

New completed art doll : Archie!

Hello everyone!

I have been pretty busy lately. I have finished my first small ball and socket armature dragon! He was a test dragon. I used him to test my fur patterns and new super glue! I am pretty satisfied with the durability and appearance overall. Introducing “Archie” the Chinese dragon! He is very sweet and gentle, and very inquisitive!

Sneak Peek: New Sculpts

Hello everyone,

I am back to blogging! I’ve been sculpting batches of paws, claws and heads! I have made a snarly wolf head and a pitbull head. IMG_5519 IMG_5522

I made an underbite mohawk dragon  head sculpt.  As well as a Chinese dragon head:

My new Wolf Pups!

Hope you all are having a great new year! By the way, when I was right about to go outside for photographs, it started raining so I got pics inside for now. I might get some pics outside tomorrow.

Anyhow, I have completed two wolf pups just as I had promised.

DSC_8062 DSC_8067

The black pup is named Bear and the red pup has no name.

Here is Bear. He is jet black wolf with some white and striking blue eyes.

DSC_8065 DSC_8066

DSC_8070

This is the red wolf pup. I think he is part fox and wolf. He is mostly red orange and black with some brown and white. His face is half red and half black with blue eyes that have tinges of hazel.

Wolf family!

Greetings Everyone

Hello everyone,

I’ve taken advantage of the holiday break to making art. I make posable art dolls. Each doll has a wire skeleton and a polymer clay head. I usually sculpt the heads in “batches” and bake them together. Then I make the dolls separately. Here are some of the dolls I made the day before Christmas Eve.

This was the first art doll to be finished: A Sabertooth Tiger.

IMG_5402 IMG_5391

This is a Fantasy Doe.She is a bit unstable on her feet but overall she is in great condition.

IMG_5383

“My back is itchy.”

IMG_5384 IMG_5385

This next one is a bloody, war torn, one-antlered stag. His name is Tecumseh.

IMG_5380 IMG_5381

I wanted to go realistic so I made a classic doe. Her name is Zambia.

IMG_5392

“Belly rub anyone?”

IMG_5397

Meet, Twilight! I made this dragon a year ago . (I will not be selling her). She has a posable ball and socket joint spine.

IMG_5406 IMG_5408

IMG_5387

This is another creature I made awhile ago. He is a dragon named Draco.

IMG_5390

After a lot of photoshoots I decided to have some fun with the camera!

“What are you?”
