Goddess Sekhmet Sculpture - An Unusual Commission

Gosh! What do the Goddess Sekhmet doing among Celidonia's Rabbits, Mice and Fairies? :O 
She is an unusual commission that I worked these days :) 

Goddess Sekhmet Sculpture in Polymer Clay - by Celidonia Daniela Messina

Goddess Sekhmet is an Egyptian Warrior Goddess and she has the sun disk in her head. An Egyptian myth says that the Sun is inside the Goddess when it's night and it says that you can see the Sun light reflected in her eyes.

Sekhmet is a solar deities. Even though I didn't it on purpose, my ooak sculpture in polymer clay dedicated to her is born just after the Winter Solstice, when the light is born again. I think it's a good time to be born for a Goddess that has the solar disk as a crown :)

Birthday Fairy - Polymer Clay Tutorial (Part 1)

Here I am with a new video tutorial. When I started working on it, I was too much optimistic: I'd like to sculpt from polymer clay a Birthday Fairy, I thought, as the video upload was exaclty for my birthday day ^^

Birthday Fairy - Polymer Clay Tutorial by Celidonia
Hi! I'm a Birthday Fairy and I'm made from Polymer Clay, like my cupcake! Would you like celebrating together with me? :) 
But I got carriet away by the project, so it become very very long. Over 200 clips, two shoot days and other two days to editing the first part. It needed to be splitted in three parts, with weekly schedule. In this first we'll see the head sculpting. In the next we'll see how to sculpt the hands, the arms, the feet and the legs. In the third we'll see how to make the cupcake, the dress and the hair :)

Fairy head, arms and legs are sculpted from Super Sculpey Living Doll, in the light color. Eyes are made from Fimo and resin, but I don't explain the doll eyes making in this tutorial. I made myself eyes for my dolls, but they are available online in many dollmaking shop. There are many tutorials that explain how make them, too. Do you like to see a Celidonia Studio tutorial on the topic? Please, write me in the comments. If I have are requests, I'll put it in my tutorials list :)

Here it is the first part. You can see it here in the blog, or in my YouTube channel. Subscribe to don't lose the next! :)

Christmas Rose Jewel - Polymer Clay Tutorial

Hellebore, also known as Winter Rose, Christmas Rose or Lenten Rose, blooms in December, near Winter Solstice. In this new video tutorial we'll sculpt it from polymer clay, to wear it as a Fairy Jewel in the Christmas Night :) 
Christmas Rose Jewel - Polymer Clay Tutorial By Celidonia

I used a mix of Cernit White Porcelain and White Fimo Professional to sculpt the petals. To color them, I used mica powder pink, light green and dark green. I sculpted pistils from White Porcelain Cernit and I color them with chalk pastels yellow and light green.

In ancient times, people believe that Hellebore cured madness. I think it's good to sculpt it in these pre Christmas made days! :)
