Elf Sculpture - part 1

Sad news. My first sculpture is being put on hold.  One morning it fell over and she was decapitated and de-legged. On the day of my friend's wedding it didn't leave me much time. I just placed it on the table and looked at it for a good two minutes and I said to myself, "I have no time".  So she sits now in the corner of my craft desk, repaired and lonely.  I'll return to her but a good break from the heartache is needed.

Good news is that I have started a second sculpture!

This lady elf is 9 inches so far and is made of a mix of Prosculpt and Fimo Puppen. Learning much from my first project, I find that baking in parts helps to make a more detailed and smooth sculpture (more control which means more tedious time involved).

And lookie!! She has a base:


  1. Oh Missa!! I am so so sorry to hear about the tragedy of your beautiful doll. :(
    But! At least she was able to be repaired, and you can return to her when the time is right.
    As of now, your elf girl looks amazing!! I cannot wait to see what she transforms into! It's great to see you being so consistently productive and I love faerie things, so this is my fave! The little mushrooms and fae magics on her stand are so pretty! Sending you lots of love and creative inspiration!! <3
