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.

great expression, and sense of force aplied to the pose, the shoulder seems to hint either an incoming slap or a prononced movement of flow.
either way it looks great, love the color scheme here too.
and that looks like real clothing.
awesome as always.
great new year ahead of you.

Good observation. I made it a resolution to mix it up with more realistic mouth shapes. They can't all be Angelina! ;)
