Details, Details

Posted by Julie Benner on January 22, 2013 at 4:55 PM

I've learned something about myself lately. I don't enjoy detail work. I love sculpting birds in polymer clay, but if it is a species of bird that has certain kinds of colors, I have to paint in the details to make it look right. Turns out that part isn't very fun for me. Worse is the fact that I then need to varnish the piece so that the paint doesn't chip or rub off. That is tricky with the tiny size of the birds that I sculpt. I've done a lot of varnishing when I was working in decoupage, so I know how to do it, but those pieces were a LOT bigger, and had mostly flat surfaces, or gently curved ones. These little guys are all curves and it's hard to hold onto them. I've been working on some chickadees and baltimore orioles for a week now, and I think I'm finally getting them finished. I'm looking forward to doing some more monochromatic or subtly colored pieces. I love my Pearlex powders so much more than paint.
