Saving everyone needing to go thru pages of my previous thread that photo bucket was kind enough to hijack all the photos from. I’m starting a new thread for my PYO’s.
I finally got the Morrigan finished and got in her custom eyes from Dreaming Tree Studio. This was also my first attempt ever to sculpt anything. I used Sculpy Oven-Bake Clay for the Raven. Progress from start to finish…
And a short video link (I hope) to show her outside in the sunlight.

It’s such a clever idea to have a raven perching on her upraised paw. 🙂 She’s beautiful!November 28, 2017 at 6:08 pm #1532420LandipanParticipant
Omg, I love the raven! That’s so cute, and it looks amazing!

My goodness, she’s gorgeous!! I absolutely love the color scheme, and the little raven is awesome–I would have never guessed that it was your first attempt at sculpting!
Can I ask how you adhered the little guy to her paw? How long did this piece take you to complete? Seeing her come to life is really incredible <3November 29, 2017 at 5:48 am #1532436BodineParticipant
That is a lovely oriental.The Raven was inspirational!I really love that sculpt.So many possibilities.
May this New Year be the best year of our lives!

Thank you everyone! I am really happy with how she turned out.
I’m not sure how much sculpting I will be doing in the future but it was a fun learning process. I do remember liking to play with play dough 40 years ago lol.
I wish the video had turned out better to show the sparkle on her but I think it was to bright outside as the video is pretty washed out. That and my cell phone and I disagree on what brightness to do things at.
Zexious, It took me just over a month to complete. That includes the Raven sculpt, which was a few days of you tube tutorials on using the clay properly and experimentation.
Some of the PYO sculpts have pre drilled holes so that you can hang a crystal or bead of some sort for them to hold. To attach the raven, when I made the it, I inserted a roughly pre shaped wire into the raven before baking. Once that, the baking and painting was done I finished shaping the wire how I needed it. Then wrapped the wire in several pieces of nylon thread and threaded half of the threads thru the top of the hole along with the wire. Then I took the other half of the threads over the back of the dragons paw and tied them to the ones threaded thru the hole. The raven was still a bit looser than I liked though so I did lightly wedge in a small piece of wood skewer to keep everything from wobbling.

I’m not sure yet if I will sell her or not. I love her, at the same time I am running out of room to display things!
