In this course you will learn to sculpt a life-like miniature baby fairy that is just 3 1/2” long. She will be similar to the dolls in the photos but will have a more intricate and lifelike pose. I’ll show you how to sculpt her sweet little sleeping face and giver her the tiniest details. We’ll even sculpt the fingers and toes one by one. I’ll show you a couple different wing styles as well. I’ll teach you a special technique to help keep your baby from getting squished during the sculpting process. Her body is fully sculpted front and back and looks very lifelike. After I teach you smoothing techniques, we’ll bake and sand her and blush her body for realism. We’ll then create some dramatic wings and I’ll show you the secrets to applying baby hair that looks amazing. Come and join the fun!

I am excited to bring this class to you through the Art Connection Summit!
