Seahorse Fantasy..... with Creative Paperclay

Hi everyone, today I want to share with you all a piece I have created "Seahorse Fantasy" using the fabulous products from Creative Paperclay...  I love using these products to create 3D dimensional projects that I can sculpt and shape to my hearts desire...


Directions:
Step one: roughly sketch out a couple of basic seahorse shapes on some chipboard to use as a base and cut them out...

Step two: add some paperclay... I used Delight Air Dry Modeling Compound .
I love how easy it is to mould and shape as I desire...

Step three: time to give them some detail... use a metal knitting needle (or something similar like a skewer) to texturise and create patterning on the seahorses...

Step four: draw and cut out and then score the fins for each of the seahorses...

 Step five: paint up the seahorses and fins and then attach them together... I used the Vivid Ultra Metallics to paint them up, giving them loads of shine...

Step six:  create the background... paint up a canvas panel...

 Step seven:  more fun with Creative Paperclay...  draw and cut out some reeds, shape and mould them with the Creative Paperclay, in the same method as the seahorses.... once dry,  paint them to match the painted background canvas....

Step eight: use gel medium to put it all together... adding some coloured gauze and mini cabochon's to finish off the piece.



Supplies: 
Canvas Panel
Acrylic Paints (I used Vivid Ultra Metallics)
Gauze
Mini Cabochons
Chipboard sheet
 I hope you've found this tutorial inspirational...
till next time
Happy Creating
