EVELYN

My latest sculpture to date, completed in April 2010.

We are currently working on the shadow box for Evelyn, which will include the vanity piece, as well as a working miniature hand-crafted floor lamp.

"Evelyn" is inspired by the famous Billy De Vorss 1944 Pin-up painting. She measures more than 12 inches in height. Evelyn is sculpted out of ProSculpt polymer clay over a very strong wire armature.

 

Evelyn is sculpted over a strong wire frame which gives great strength and support to the sculpture.

Evelyn's sexy black teddy is sculpted from black polymer clay, black nylon material and black lace.

The famous Billy De Vorss painting which insipires this piece can also be seen in the photo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evelyn's hair is high quality Tibetan mohair that has been hand-dyed.

 

 

 

 

FRONT VIEW

Evelyn is wearing faux diamond earrings and a pretty pink bow in her hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her eyes are hand sculpted from polymer clay and hand painted. Eyelashes are maticulously applied and the final touches of make-up are added.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

Evelyn's vanity was hand-crafted and designed by Paul Grubb. It is made out of oak wood and then sanded and stained. All miniature letters, newspaper and photo are also Paul's creations!

A shadow box is currently being created to bring all of the peices together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evelyn's toe nails and finger nails are painted a pale pink. Her shoes (which can be seen in this photo and the photo below) are sculpted from black polymer clay and a faux diamond has been added on each shoe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE EYES!

Evelyn's green eyes are sculpted from polymer clay and then hand painted for that realistic 3-D effect. In the past, I have used glass blown eyes, but they just did not give the depth and realism I was hoping for. It took quite a bit of trial and error to finally find a technique that works for me. A touch of various shades of green and a splash of gold is what these beautiful hazel eyes needed.

THE TEETH!

Evelyn's teeth are also sculpted from polymer clay and are inserted into the jaw of the sculpture after they are cured and painted. You can see in the photo how very tiny they are.
