Which Rapunzel Do You Prefer?

First of all, Happy New Year!!! This time, I’m making two versions of Rapunzel. One is the classic version (I think its more similar to the classic fairytale, again I followed FlyingMio’s tutorial on youtube), the other one is the Rapunzel we all know from Disney’s Tangled.

I enjoyed making the flowers details on her hair although it is time consuming, but its so pretty.

As for the Tangled Rapunzel…

I struggled to smooth out the top part of her hair because the airdry clay has gone dried during the making process. But this is coz I had to wait for the clay to get a bit dry so it wont be sticking to each other and make the hair looks like a mess (since I had to do the hair strand by strand). This is the weakness of amos airdry clay. When its not dried, it is very sticky and once it sticks, you cant took it off without ruining the shape. So I played around with it until its almost dry and then quickly shaped the hair, but as a result, it is too late to smooth out the top bit of the head.

So its either having a smooth blend top but messy squeezed curly hair (remember my failed mermaid on my previous post) or having messy unblend top but pretty curly hair. I choosed the later 🙂

So here are the finished Rapunzels.

I would love to try playing with polymer clay next time, but I’ll wait until I finish all of my air dry clay that I bought. I think the end result will be much nicer, less messy and more detailed using polymer clay.

 

Frozen Princesses

I remember around this time last year, I watched Frozen and I love it. So I’ve decided to make the two princesses.

For Anna, I followed FlyingMio’s tutorial from youtube, but for Elsa, this was my first time making a figurine without any tutorial (the second time was The Smurfs which was previously posted on the blog). I dont really like the Elsa that was made by FlyingMio (especially the hair, I found it to be a lil bit weird) so I tried to create my own Elsa.

For Elsa’s cape and dress, I sprinkled some eye shadow glitters to make it all sparkly and pretty. Too bad you can’t clearly see the glitters from pictures…

As for my Anna, her tiny boots can’t hold the weight of her body so she can’t stand up on her own without leaning onto something 😦 regardless, she is still adorable.

So here are the two princesses from Frozen.

Happy Holidays From The Smurfs

A friend of mine is a huge fan of The Smurfs, and she asked me to make her smurfs clay figurine. I tried to make this figurine without using tutorial. So here goes…

Started with the body and the head.

Then, I made a little gift box since its holiday season.

For the face, I decided not to make it looks like the original Smurfs’ face. Instead, I’m gave them my chibi version of face (like the ones being used for all my chibi princesses).

He looked a bit lonely by himself, so I made Smurfette to accompany him.

Happy holidays!!!

Arabian Princess

Presenting…. Princess Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin! Love how she turns out to be, she is so adorable. Again, I was following youtube video tutorial by FlyingMio but I made a few changes. I wanted to make the magic carpet, therefore, instead of making her standing up like in the tutorial, I made her sitting down so she can sit on the magic carpet.

I’m thinking of making Aladdin or the Genie to accompany her on the magic carpet, but we’ll see…

Little Mermaid

Chibi Princess Ariel from Disney’s Little Mermaid 🙂 This is my second attempt on making her. The first one was my very first try on making clay and therefore it was a disaster. She got squished here and there because of my inexperience in using air dry clay. Air dry clay is very sticky when you first take it out from its container. You have to play around with it for a while so it wont be as sticky and easier to mold with.

This is the failed Ariel….

And now…. the new Ariel!

Sleeping Beauty

Amongst all the Disney princesses that I have made, I found Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty to be most challenging so far. I struggled mostly with the hair, and had to redo it three times before I manage to get it right. Still not perfect, but acceptable.

For the tiara and necklace, I painted it with gold glitter nail polish to make it all sparkly!
