    Fiona the Faun

    Here's my latest sculpt.

    Fiona the Faun

    Fiona the Faun

    She is 6 inches tall not including the base and is sculpted from a custom mixture of Porcelain Puppen Fimo and Fimo Classic over a rigid aluminum armature. Her legs are flocked with embroidery yarn fibers to match her auburn mohair. She is costumed with various fiber ribbons and custom formed copper jewelry. Her pipes are made from short brass tubing.

    Her forest base is sculpted entirely from Magic Sculp epoxy and is finished with various scenic elements including sand, plastic and flocked foliage and fiber weeds.

    Thanks guys!

    The hands were pretty tough! This is the third set I made and they turned out a little bit chunky. I broke the other ones.

    There are some pretty good tutorials on sculpting smaller scale stuff here:

    I will too join in opinions that you did great great piece. And all those ''little'' things like hair, eyelashes, jewelery, base and..., you made big effort for this, and it was worth. Only hands look little off, you might add something too show knuckles on fingers next time. And one more thing bothers me, her breasts are censored, as it seems. Because braids on them don't look falling down quite natural but look like being ''glued'' on her nipples. There's nothing to be ashamed of if they were visible since they seem to be so nicely sculpted I think.

    Yeah - the hands on this one gave me a little trouble handling the polymer clay material. They broke several times and i had to keep re-doing them so I think that affected the "groove".

    This was the "modest" set of photos I shot to post on eBay. Here is a more "natural" shot.
