NEW YEARS DIVA 3 by wingdthing NEW YEARS DIVA 3 by wingdthing
First piece for the new year, 2010! One of a kind polymer clay fantasy sculpture by Nicole West. (yes, that's me!)

I felt no better figure of mine could convey the new year like a Diva. They are my favorite girls. All I saw of her in my head were the colors. I loved how the combonation was both elegant and flashy. You know, sophisticated "in your face". Enjoy!

did you paint her body a flesh tone? or is the polymer already coloured flesh and you've just added toning?
i'm doing a polymer sculpt of a fairy right now, using flesh tone sculpey, and i've picked up fluff in her skin, so i could sand her after baking, but its pretty deep and almost all over!
any tips!
Also, i really REALLY love this girl, that hat is wow!

The clay I sculpt in is almost always the color the flesh is meant to be. Polymer clay is like a magnet for lint. Try to keep your work area as clean as possible. I lay down a sheet of plasic wrap so that the piece is protected when I set it down. Also, wash your hands a lot! Keep a chunk of scrap clay to knead with your hands to help pull off any possible lint. Keep your tools clean too. I know it's a lot, but it helps. You will still end up with some on your sculpt. Instead of sanding use pure acetone on a square cotton pad. Soak the pad and then squeeze out the excess. You want it damp, not dripping. After curing, wipe down the sculpt with these pads. It will take a few but it will leave your piece clean and smooth.
Best of luck.
