New golem creature! Needed to use sculpy for this one due to time constraints and multiple pieces needing to be stuck together. Aside from the chunks taken out, all the weathering is done with paint on a smooth surface. Moss is made with finely chopped embroidery thread! #sculpture #art #sculpy #mixedmedia #fantasyart #golem #natureart

Alright! Here it is! Felting trees is such a silly thing but they make a great pine forest. #art #bonsaimountain #tinymountain #sculpture #miniatures #milliput #felting #mixedmedia #natureart

One small bit of the mountain is forested. It took me an hour to sculpt and paint it and like three  or four to get all the trees all put on. I have to make them myself, technically I think I'm felting them... #art #miniatures #mixedmedia #sculpture #tinymountain #bonsaimountain #tinyfelting

Bonsai mountains take a lot of patience. Right now I'm adding the trees and touching up the paint. I should have the rest finished by tomorrow. But the trees are so tiny... #art #sculpture #miniatures #milliput #acrylic #mixedmedia

Finished!!! For the most part! I cut up and mixed different embroidery threads for my moss effects! Everything else is paint and cardboard! As always after a project I have no idea what to do with myself! #art #sculpture #cardboardart #cardboard #architectureart #mixedmedia #miniatures #littlebuildings

Base paint layers are done with a bit of detailing on the wood bits. Next comes the weathering of the walls and maybe some extra bits and bobs. #art #sculpture #cardboardart #miniatures #architectureart #acrylic #foundmaterials

Thought I might as well post this old sculpy creation from a year or two ago. Those bones were super frustrating as sculpy gets really tacky in small pieces. It's not finished yet. It's probably missing a fresh paint job and some fluff but until then it will have to do. It also shows how far I've come in just a year. 
PS. Is it evident I like deer as well?

More paintings! Tarot cards have always been an interest of mine! So which better one to start with than death, the symbol of change and new beginnings! More acrylics and shiny inks. #art #painting #occultart #tarotart #death #acrylic

Man I sure do seem to love the moon and koi fish! Hahaha. This was a stained glass effect done with watercolours, then layered over with acrylic. The glass part was then finished with modgepodge to create a shiny clear surface over the glass part! #art #stainedglasspainting #watercolors #acrylic #painting #mixedmedia

When I'm not making sculptures I'm usually painting! This one is mostly acrylic with a couple iridescent inks! Just a nice moon with the twin gods of the harvest! #art #painting #acrylic #occultart

And now on to something completely different. A little cafe store front! Made from all sorts of things like wood and cardboard and plastic! Painted and brought to life. Last shot is my hand for scale. #art #architectureart #sculpture #miniatures #mixedmedia

Robot Cerberus. A watchdog if you will! More milliput. Spent ages carving out the clay. And then peeling the paint back with a knife to get the rust effects. All to get something that fits in the palm of your hand. Totally worth every second. #art #milliput #sculpture #robotart #miniatures #cerberus

Super tiny stuff now! Working with milliput and man is a different feel... Still, I don't have to worry about baking it... It did have to be assembled though. The last picture is of it before paint and finishing touches. PS. Most of it has to be carved away.#art #milliput #scuplture #robotart #miniatures
