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!

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.

PS: Another Fantasy Fawn Coming Soon!

For the New Readers: Welcome! All my art dolls are completely handmade and unique. I hand sculpt the head and paws (if any) and hand paint them with acrylics. I attach the hardened clay to a wire frame which is assembled by me. I also fur the faces and the paws by hand.  Then I wrap the frame with stuffing and sew on the vegan fur casing.

A NEW art doll! : “Jasmine” A Chubby Wallaby

Hello All,

I am so excited to present to everyone a new and special art doll: an adorable wallaby!

This little fluff ball is unique because I furred the face and paws. Furring is very time-consuming but very rewarding! I cut clumps of fur off and glued it carefully on the clay face. This technique gives my critters a more realistic look.

This baby wallaby,Jasmine, is also very squishy because I added a poly-fill layer of padding. She also has some shading on her coat.

Ok, Now photos of the finished masterpiece:

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):
