So excited to show you my first angel from Suzi Blu’s angel class available in her stylized faces self study class.
I learned a lot in this class about creating texture with light modeling paste. I’ve used it before, but never to the extent of playing with it after it was applied. I used it in the wings and on the flowers and used tools to create additional feathery texture and paint to enhance them.
My only real disappointment was using the angelina fibers in her hair. I probably should have gone with a lighter color, the blue is fantastic, but doesn’t really pop off the blond hair like it does the blue dress. Next time I’ll use a lighter color with lighter hair, maybe orange or yellow.
If you have any questions about this piece, please don’t hesitate to ask.
