flying curdle worm by beatblack flying curdle worm by beatblack
This moth winged creature was a loooong time in the making. After struggling with trying to make it affordable I finally decided that I'd make it and worry about the purchase price once it was done.

It's gross almost human like mole ridden flesh and sharp pointy teeth work in contrast with its sparkly pale coloured wings. Handmade from polymer clay and painted with acrylics.

A blog post featuring pictures of this worm in various stages can be found at the link below

This is so unbelievably amazing and creepy! :noes: I don't know why, but my favorite part is the legs. I want to touch them :noes: Excellent color choices. Even though they're muted earth tones, it really works for this piece, making it more believable (as if this were actually a real creature!)

what kind of glaze do you use? it looks really nice, not too shiny.

beatblack Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013   Artisan Crafter
for this piece it was the 'satin' sculpey glaze. It's not totally matte but like you say, its not too shiny either

...And here I was squeeing over the squids. This has gotta be one of my favorites now. This is -awesome-. O.O I want this thing so bad.. Dear god.. The details! How did you not rip your hair out! Exactly how long did this one take you to make?

beatblack Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012   Artisan Crafter
thank you! It took months just cause I'd start and then end up putting it aside for a while. All in all it took over 7 hours but I'm really not sure how many exactly, I've forgotten, tho its written down online somewhere

Well the dedication/persistence definitely paid off. Have you made anymore since doing this one? God.. If I had the money I'd so buy a few of them from you... xD I'd love to hang them around my room. Have you experienced with like.. Making some slightly different colors? Both wing/body? They remind me of a "Disgustingly beautiful" (I liked that phrase too) alien/fantasy creature... Because I keep imagining this thing flying through the sky.. Only HUGE. lol

thank you so much ^_^ I haven't made anymore of the flying ones. The thing that most inspired me to make this one were the muted, earthy colours in my head. I do see a green one too though so one day I'd love to make another. I'll be finishing more that don't fly in the future too. If they didn't take so long to make I'd have a whole army by now, haha

If I had your skills in making things like these I'd still probably be broke. >.> I'd make myself armies and never be able to sell them to anyone.
