How is a Fairy Born - Cap. 2

In this new video we'll see how the fairy chest is born. Modeling the chest with attention is important because it is like the center of a star, from which face and limbs are born. It contains the heart. Sculpting the navel with attention is very important too, it remembers us our come in this world and it is the midpoint of the circle in which Leonardo inscribed his vitruvian man.

As I said in the last post, this Baby Fairy is sculpted from polymer clay Super Sculpey Living Doll.

You can see the video on Celidonia Studio's youtube channel or here on the blog.

At the end I inserted a wire to join head and chest in a polymer clay body, but... does anyone know how to join head and chest in a flesh and blood body? There is anywhere a tutorial? :)

How is a Fairy Born

Here is the Celidonia's second video on youtube! I show the Fairy making off. In this first step we'll see how to create a Fairy face in polymer clay - I used Living Doll by Sculpey (I'm loving this brand).
Since a Fairy Birth is a fairytale, my video is... a fairytale tutorial! :)

Traditional Clay vs Polymer Clay

sculpture in traditional clay and in polymer clay
Every material we can mould allows our imaginative figures to become a concrete reality. From sand to marble, going through, clay, polymer clay, papier-maché, until bread paste, every of them give us a possibility to share our interior world's inhabitants with others.

In the collage above, the figures on the right are in polymer clay, one right down, made in Cernit, is about twelve years ago and became Celidonia Fairy, for my first exposition a Canneto dull'Oglio Museum.  In the upper right corner, there is the most recent Maple Fairy, made in Prosculpt.
The two figures on the left are made in traditional clay and they are the work of my last year, in which I attended a school of sculpture to increase my knowledge in traditional clay modeling.
At the bottom is my first work, a study of female nude, above there is my last work, a portrait studio, in which maybe someone will recognize my mom.

Traditional clay and polymer clay are different like Sun and Moon. I wrote about their property and my experience with them in my Italian post. I'm sorry I'm not able to translate the full post in English.

Celidonia's Fairies have a youtube channel

Finally, we created the Celidonia's youtube channel and I hope I'll post tutorials and fairy videos soon. Little Rabbit, Mice, and Fairies are so trilled, because they was stars for a minute, taking part in the Celidonia's presentation video! :)
