"For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn to fairy tales and fantasy...and the only thing better than reading about fairies is making them!"
Here's your guide to sculpting fantasy characters that are a little quirky, occasionally cranky and definitely fun. Dawn Schiller's "oddfae" are gnarly little folk who are often mischievous and always fun to sculpt. In this book, you'll learn Dawn's secrets for shaping incredibly detailed and friendly (for the most part) little faces, hands and feet, poseable bodies, and true-to-life costumes.
Crank up your imagination, grab your sculpting tools and some clay, and find out who's waiting for you inside. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be ready to bring to life original fae friends of your very own!
