The Art of Darkness

Fantastic Dead Fairy

February 16th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Dead FairyI’m always thrilled when one of my posts inspires someone to try something similar. Naamah used my mummified fairy tutorial as a jumping-off point to create an absolute work of art.

Her build notes are here, and I just love some of the detail work she did (like modeling little innards). In particular, I like the way that she did the disintegrating wings so much that I’m tempted to make another one just so I can try that method.

She also wrote a backstory which not only describes how she came into possession of this “artifact,” but also details the origins of this type of fairy. I thought that was a nice touch.

If you’ve been thinking about building a wunderkammer piece of your own, this should provide some fantastic inspiration. Go take a look!

    Thank you so much for the link!

    I had great, great fun making my little guy.

    For my next attempt, I plan to stick much closer to your tutorial. I really want to try the pantyhose method, since yours has that lovely mummified whole look, well-preserved, whereas mine had clearly had time to decompose.
