Happy Good Friday!
I know it’s a holiday, but I love my job, so of course, I’m working!
I first hand edged the sparkly under bodice with silver thread. For look, but for function as well. We can’t have the edge unravelling now can we? Of course not!
The join between the sparkly and the skirt isn’t beautiful, but then it won’t ever be seen as it will be underneath the icy, glittery bodice.
Speaking of which That’s what I did next…
Here it is all drab and blue with no exciting shiny bits of any sort. Well, we’ll fix that, won’t we?
Armed with a good close up, four colours of glitter and glue and I can start! I did this stages because I really wanted the rectangular aspect of the original to show…
So here it is after the first two applications of the three colours. I opted not to use the straight silver glitter. It didn’t fit in. It just looked kind of wrong, so it got canned. No hand holding here, lol! The bodice looks a bit crude here, but with more apllications it will look better!
All righty then, here it is with much more glitter and I like it! It actually looks better in person, because more of the glitter catches the light. It’s a little tough to capture the effect in the photo.
So, I sealed that with a spray. I’m sure it will be something that will be handled delicately, but I certainly don’t want it to leave a trail of glitter everywhere it goes….. unlike me, who is doing just that, lol!
Then I did some more work on the shoe. The animated ones are sort of a snowflake at the toe and another around the heel. I’m trying to sculpt that effect.
So the jagged edges evoke the right feel, but I would prefer the edge to look more like a deliberate snowflake. So I had to add some more clay and wait (endlessly it seems) for it to dry before I could shape it too much….
Still needs more shaping and refining, but it’s almost ready to mold.
Molding and casting is such a long process with lots of waiting that I will likely be working on Anna’s gown during the curing and waiting periods.
All that’s left for Elsa is fasteners on her bodice and dress and attached her snowflake cape to her gown, and of course the shoes
