Fairy Shoes


One day I was searching the web and ran across a pair of fairy shoes and I just had to make a pair. This is the first pair but it will definitely not be the last. they are two and half inches long. I still would like them to be a little bit smaller. It was just so much fun! I have been sculpting for three weeks. Stopping only to eat and sleep. I have managed to keep up with my New Years resolution of being in the studio by 6:00 am. I am hoping all this hard work will pay off with some new and improved skills. I have pulled out every sculpting book I have and am trying new things.
My tip if the week: After smoothing with the hand sanitizer and before the clay goes in the oven I use cornstarch to smooth the clay a little more.

Neat, are they buttons or charms or pins or to be worn by little doll feet?

I love them, but they are a bit scary to me. Remember the way the bad witch's feet curled up under the house?

I am so happy when someone is so taken by their art that they do it all the time. I am sometimes that way. I'd write more, but I have to go draw. Take care, Susan
