I just spent a day-and-a-half at a workshop to make this beautiful angel. What a wonderful experience! The teacher, Maria Saracino, is an award-winning artist whose work is beyond amazing.
Maria works with Super Sculpey to sculpt her characters. I had never worked with it until I took my first class with Maria.
Everything about the angel is handmade. We sculpted the face and hands (with delicate little fingers); applied make-up to enhance her pretty face; made the wings, the dress and the delicate underskirt. It is such a fascinating journey to see a block of clay and some bits of fabric turn into a beautiful angel that, I hope, will become a family heirloom.
Maria has turned Sculpey into a medium for fine art. Visit Maria’s site to see her unforgettable hand-sculpted characters.
P.S. Here’s me, with my completed angel. Do I look happy? Oh, yah!
