HUMMINGBIRD SCULPTURE

  • Concept + pattern design
  • Hand fabrication

Details:

This tiny darling is little over twice the size of a real hummingbird. For size reference, in several of the photos he's sitting on top of my lens cap.

I used imported French faux fur because every inch of this piece was scissor sculpted so the hair count had to be super dense.

The peice was then meticulously hand-dyed using a comination of Copic markers metallic gold paint and other magical things.

The feet, which anchor into the structural armature, are bundled brass wires finished with heat-shrink tubing.


Specs:

Sculpture dimensions: 2.25" x 5.5"
Materials: Imported French faux fur, Ultrasuede, velvet, brass and aluminium wire (armature), and the essential scary-sharp scissors.
