The first goddess figure I made, the largest one pictured above, was for my wife. She wanted a pocket goddess to carry and have for one of her many tiny altars around the house. I enjoyed the process of creating that first one so much that I've made a few more.
These are made with layers of epoxy resin over a copper armature. Each layer is sanded and detailed until it is finished. Then I stain them with oil paint and finish with an oil-based varnish.
They are tiny, and I'm not sure what to do with them. I may gild a couple. I might put a them on little stands or apply pin findings to the back of them for jewelry. I dunno ...
What do you think?
