Miss Fairy (Update 2)

Here are some more progress pictures on this model. I had thought this was a fairly simple figure, but it was a recast and this takes a bit more work.

The wings required extra support for pinning to the body. They were sprayed with Alclad II prismatic red to gold and also trimmed around the edges in gold.

The white trim on the bottom of her dress had to be heated and formed before it would come even close to fitting. And, the laces on her boots are not particularly well done.

Miss Fairy (Update 1)

So here we are near the end of April, and I am finally doing some more work on Miss Fairy. Back in January I had put the Miss Fairy parts into silicon as I intend to recast her in bronze. It is time now to paint and assemble her, as I haven’t done much modeling this year.

Some in-progress pictures follow. I am in the process of painting and shading the work.

Miss Fairy (Beginning)

Well, it is January of 2013, a brand new year, and it is now time to start a new resin figure model. A few months ago while shopping in an arts and crafts store I discovered a proper sized bird cage on clearance for a dollar or two. I realized that this would be a perfect base for a fairy.

I think the idea came to me from seeing Tinker Bell in Disneyland.

Now, a fairy is an interesting figure. I wanted to take silicon molds of the resin parts as I am working towards bronze casting my resin figures. I suspect I will cast this at some time.

Once I have the silicon molds I take wax impressions of the parts. It takes only a few moments to glue them together. This gives me an impression of what this will look like when finished.
