My sister is probably the biggest Dave Matthews Band fan to walk the face of this planet. She’s been to so many of his concerts I think that she’s even lost counts, following him all the way to the east coast and back!
With that in mind I decided to sculpt a Fire Dancer ornament to give her as a Christmas gift this year and I think it came out pretty amazing considering it was made from aluminum foil, sculpey and acrylic paint.
I separately sculpted the legs, torso and arms and pieced them together by smoothing out the clay together the same way I did in my Bumble sculpting (Mini Sculpting: The Bumble). I screwed a small eye bolt into the head area to hand it before baking it.
After baking it and allowing it to cool off, I painted it red and yellow allowing the paint to bleed into each other to make an appearance of flames.
