Spring Dancer

Nr 15 in Fantasy Collection

OOAK fairy sculpture by Mollamari Creations

Spring Is Coming!
I saw a little willow tree
Dancing in the breeze,
To the harmony of song birds,
And the buzzing of the bees.

The butterfly would flutter by.
Kissing all the flowers.
The grass was green and fresh and clean,
Bathed by April showers.

The daffodils, upon the hills
All nod their heads in rhythm.
The Bluebells rings, the Robins sing
And my heart joins in with them.

Tis spring!
O' Joyous spring!

(Kathleen Lowery

The spring fairy is dancing for the joy of spring. She has soft and curly ash blond Tibetan lambs hair,
and she wears lovely spring grass wreath on her hair. Her eyes are golden green, and they are glazed to get very living expression in them,
painted with quality heat-set  oil colors. She has real eyelashes and eyebrows made of lambswool on her beautiful eyes.
Her light skin has four very thin translucent layers of colourwash made with heat-set oil paints,
to achieve very living and fleshy tone of skin. I have used new clay mix on her,
so she has much more pale and fairy-like skin than my previous sculptures.

She has large iridescent and slightly transparent yellow wings with orange highlights, decorated with glitter, which makes them sparkle in the light.
She dances on a driftwood base, which is decorated with artificial moss, leaves and spring flowers.
There is a brass tube in her right leg all the way to her hip, and the base has steal rod
which fits the tube, and she can be taken off from her base.
Her armature is made of twisted strong silver-plated copper, and Aves Apoxie sculpt, which makes her extremely strong,
she has wires all the way to her fingers too.

Her every muscle, bone and all the tiniest details are hand sculpted by me from professional quality polymer clay.
She is one of a kind (OOAK) creature, and will never be duplicated.
She is 17 cm (6 1/4"") tall without wings. The overall height with base and wings is 26 cm  (10 3/8"), and the width is 19 cm (7 5/8").

The video clip shows her turning around, and you can see how her wings sparkle in orange, green and yellow!
