Tinkerbell - Blacksmith Miniatures

Hi friends,

In november 2019 i finished another commission, sculpted by my friend Patrick Masson for Blacksmith Miniatures, the Tinkerbell. This piece helped me and forced me to touch the brushes again, great feelings.

This probably isnt my most technical piece, but it has been a challenge as the sculpture is so delicate. Patrick did such an amazing job on it! The bird is so smooth and so real, it's amazing what this guy can do with some Fimo. The cast has a lot of very small and fragile parts that are easy to break (i broke the wings of the fairy twice while painting) and require some experience and lots of delicacy, but painting something difficult is a good way to come back in the hobby i think.

For the colors choices and as a starting point, i looked for nice birds on the internet and decided to take inspiration from this wonderful Tree swallow :

So i started painting the bird with this picture as a guideline, but allowing me to take some liberties regarding the colors. Then, the rest of the piece almost painted itself! ;)


I envoyed a lot painting it and i hope you like it! If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. Cheers!
