Here's a Moth, hatched from the Northern Renaissance... in Premier air-dry clay, mulberry paper with stainless steel and aluminum wire armature. Painted in acrylics, with metallic gold.
Brushed Kato Polyclay over gold-plated wire & archival tissue paper. The tissue paper & wire were coated with PVA glue and allowed to dry, supplying the clay with a congenial surface. Several colours of Pearl Ex powder, from Jacquard, were brushed on, as well. This was the first pair I made in this way, actually. Now I prepare to attach them to somebody.
A scan of the wings for the fairy I’m aiming to put on eBay this week, much enlarged. They’re brushed Kato Polyclay over archival tissue paper, with gold-filled wire armature. I also dusted them with Pearl Ex powders before baking. No paint was used; the colours are mixed Kato. More anon...
(And more on people’s delightful Inscrutable Scribble speculations... far more entertaining than what I’m actually doing!)
