The Slipper Orchid Fairy Sculpture

Now that I have finished the 12 flower fairies in watercolor, I am working on the 3D version of each of the fairies. Below is the beginnings of fairy #3 in a series of 12 sculptures in sculpey clay. In this particular sculpture, I decided to bulk up the figure by using epoxy first to give strength to the sculpture. This fairy is held by just one foot so it is important to create strength around that area. I hope to finish it by using a layer of sculpey over the epoxy.
