Irish Celtic Fairy in Green Sitting with Cross Fox OOAK Sculpture

Details

This Celtic fairy was sculpted by hand using Premo polymer clay. She wears a sparkling green polymer clay dress and her green slippers were painted on with acrylic paint. The laces are thin strings of polymer clay. Her glossy black hair is also polymer clay and has been textured for added realism. Her ruffled wings were made from a blue, green, yellow, and glow in the dark polymer clay cane (which I created just for this project). The veins and outer edges of the wings on both sides glow in the dark creating a truly magical effect. The last picture shows the back of the wings in the dark, although in reality the glowing sections are much clearer and more defined. The pretty fairy is petting and talking to a cross fox, which is a color variant of the red fox and can be found in Ireland. The fox was also sculpted by hand from Premo polymer clay. He has a red and black coat with a white tipped tail and I coated his nose and eyes with high gloss varnish for a realistic shine. I used acrylic paint to add the black coloration to the fox's underbelly, legs, face, ears, back, and tail. The rocks that the fairy is sitting on were also created from polymer clay, as were the yellow flowers at her feet. I mixed equal amounts of yellow and glow in the dark clay, so the flowers also glow nicely in the dark. The sculpture measures 4 1/2 inches tall ans the base is 4 inches wide. I covered the bottom of the base in felt, which I've signed and dated so you know this is an original creation.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I created this piece as an entry for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Celtic Challenge. It took a bit of research to decide just what qualified as "Celtic", and in doing that research I learned some interesting things and discovered many wonderful Celtic myths and a symbols. If you're at all familiar with my work you know that animals feature prominently. It made sense to add some type of animal with my fairy, but I wanted to be sure it fit the theme. While studying different types of animals native to Ireland I found the cross fox, which is a color variant of the red fox. I really liked his striking black markings and thought he'd be the perfect companion to my dark haired fairy.

What a lovely transaction from start to finish! Great communication and fast shipping from this artisan who has a personable and helpful attitude. Michelle really knows how to make her customers feel important! My cat Chester tried to help me "open" the shipping envelope that had this catnip in it, so I guess he could smell it through two sealed bags! I can't wait to make a toy for him to try it out!
