About : This is my latest LED lit sculpture. As always, the electronics were wired by my husband and I sculpted around it. I had to come up with some new techniques for the flames. They were created using translucent Premo! clay which was baked and then attached to the sculpture. The wings are made of super sculpey and sculpey firm over a wire mesh.
The rest of the sculpture was made with apoxie sculpt. Not only is this clay more durable, it’s the only way to sculpt around wires since I can’t put the electronics in the oven. I am really happy with how the lights came out and they look awesome in person. They also look a lot more red than they appear in the photos.
