|Little Flower Fairy polymer clay, crochet, needle felt|
I am having so much fun learning how to sculpt in polymer clay. Meet my second creation, tentatively named Sparkles.
|Polymer clay doll head 2|
|Polymer clay fairy|
She was sculpted without molds, in Sculpey Living Baby clay.
I did her head first, on an armature made of wire embedded in a tinfoil ball, then covered with tape.
Then I sculpted her hands and feet and placed them on an wire armature that i made myself. Then I sculpted her hands and feet again because I ruined them while putting them on the armature :-).

|Crocheted outfit for polymer clay mini doll|
I crocheted this cute outfit using embroidery floss instead of yarn, and gave her flower "wings". I didn't have enough of the light green, or I would have made most of the outfit in green, with only a bit of the orange. I've ordered some crochet cotton in pretty colors and it should be in next week. I can't wait!

I am really excited about learning how to sculpt because it's allowing me to combine so many of the crafts I already do (needle felting and crochet, reborning (the painting). I can even make some plastic canvas furniture for the dolls.
Thanks for taking a peek at my flower fairy. Should I keep calling her Sparkles, or can you help me with a better name?
