aprilfoolromance asked: Your work is so lovely!!

Thank you so much! 

rawfrog asked: Hey girl I LOVE your work !! Keep it up ! What do you use for the faces ? What type of plaster or clay ? Brand name ?

Thank you! I use Magic Sculpt for most of my faces since you don’t need to bake it. It is a two part epoxy clay and it is rather popular as far as I know. But I made some of my earlier faces with cheap air drying clay. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with the medium you are working in!

A work in progress… the bunny got some more fur because I wanted to try sculpting fur a bit… it took ages but it was fun.
Another one of Snowdrop… all buttoned up and not yet bleeding. I am still astonished at how well those hand sewn buttonholes work…
I just recently finished editing the pics I took of Snowdrop, Death and Hugo, so I will be posting these over the next few days. This is one of my favourite pics. I still like the idea of red threads as blood… poor Snowdrop…
Working on this little rabbit trophy. I wanted to try something less time consuming than the dolls, but still in the same style. I will try to finish this little one soon, but I am currently writing a paper, and then there are two other papers that need to be written… my time management is a mess…
This is the black bats derpy face. 
I will start posting a lot more through (my) day, because I used to keep my Tumblr posts for late and then forgot posting and thats how this Tumblr blog just became deserted… 
A size comparison. This black bat turned out bigger than Hugo, mostly by accident. The black fur is really annoying to work with and I can’t wait to be done with the whole thing and get t sculpting again. I really miss sculpting…

Some sketches from today… I will work some of these into bigger sketches/drawings some time this week… it feels good to sketch…

"Hugo, the Bringer of Spring"Even before the last snow melts, Hugos work begins. He soars through the sky, dipped in moonlight, sprinkling the earth with seeds and dewdrops from his pouch. Even though one might not think of him as the sensitive type, given his grim exterior and sometimes grumpy behavior, he enjoys caring for the fragile seeds and plants and newly blossomed flowers.
"Snowdrop and the Black Rabbit"
Snowdrop was surprised by how cold his touch was. It was like a breeze, the breeze that carries away the last living leaves of a tree. Snow will fall, wiping away the redness and the pain. The limbs will soon break down into earth and give life to something new. And the air will grow warm again…
Weird selfie of me with Hugo… Good for guessing his size and seeing me… I don’t really like seeing myself… I should really do something with my hair…
I finished this one and all his details today… he got a little felted pouch to carry seeds in and a flower crown… and his name is Hugo…
A grumpy bat face.. I already painted it but the light seems to be especially crappy tonight so I will wait with updates until I have nice pics…
I am not much into the typical Valentine’s Day stuff, like forcing people to be romantic. But I still see this day as a reminder to think about your loved ones (Hi loved ones *waves*) and maybe do something nice for them. With loved ones I mean partners as well as friends, family and even pets. Creating heart-shaped treats or sending cute messages is something we can do every day of the year, but sometimes life gets hectic and we forget. So it’s nice to have a day for that.I made this card for my boyfriend, but I want to share the love so you can share yours. I scanned the card and the heart (the heart is meant to hold your message) so you can print it out at home. You can cut out the card and write on the back or you can use the heart like I did and cut out the paws with a sharp knife so the otter holds it or you can use your own love letter if you are not into anatomical hearts. I will take the link down again pretty soon since it is a Valentine’s Day thing… And I hope the whole printing thing works, I have not tried it myself…Have a lovely day!
