Kaleidomoon Scope WIP - Sailormoon by sakkysa Kaleidomoon Scope WIP - Sailormoon by sakkysa
This is actually taking a lot longer than I anticipated, but I think it's going to be well worth the work. ;P

Just wanted to share the progress!

So, now that I have some time, here's a little more detailed description.

The core of the wand is a 3/4" dowel. I drilled a hole in the main round ball and put the dowel through it. I then created the moon for the front of it with clay and left a spot for a gemstone which will go on at the end. That part is epoxied to the main ball.

The top bits are sculpted from clay. I drilled a hole through the top of the dowel, through the clay and into the ball to secure the top part on. It's all epoxied together.

The crown and the decoration under the main ball were sculpted, baked, and glued into place.

The bottom decoration is sculpted directly to the dowel then secured with another dowel that goes down in the the bottom ball.

The wings were cut from balsa wood. I then drilled holes into the side of the main ball and epoxied the wings in. The handles were rough cut from plywood then I used the Dremel and sand paper to shape them. They each have a dowel pin epoxied at the top and bottom to secure them to the main structure.

The original balls on the crown were too weak so I broke them off and replaced them with wooden beads that have dowels going through them and into the main part of the crown.

I also used some joint compound to clean up the gaps and spaces around things as best I could.

I started priming already, it looks great all the same color. Can't wait to be done!

I have a degree in fine art with a concentration in sculpture so this is not my first time on the 3d bicycle. You can see my old work from college in the sculpture folder on ~asteraascended :D

The end result tooooootally doesn't look like it's made out of wood.

It looks like plastic. Like high quality kick-ass I bought it at wal*mart for 50 bucks Sailor Moon Official merchandise type plastic. That is so awesome!

It' the shinyness of the paint. In the photograph it has that weird sheen that plastic usually has. ^^If I hadn't looked up your work in progress I would still think it was plastic. XD

Wait ... so the wings and the handles were cut from wood and everything else was clay? O.O how on earth did you get it attached to baked clay??? Did you hot glue it?

sakkysa Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh nevermind this comment IS ON the WIP. haha. :slow:

The clay stuff is mostly attached to the wood with glue ^__^; Sorry if that was confusing, I'm always confused.

lol, yea, I saw the finished product and went to check the details XP

lol, it's fine XP

Oh okay, so the handle and wings are wood, but everything that's clay is attached with wood glue?

Here's a detailed break down, top to bottom: wooden ball, clay petals, wooden flat circles with clay decoration in between, wooden dowel, clay crown, wooden ball with dowel through it with clay on the front, wooden wings (balsa wood), clay heart decoration around dowel (not structural), clay ring decoration (not structural), clay flare sculpted onto dowel, wooden ball, wooden handles.

Everything is anchored to whatever it's attached to with dowel pins except the moon on the front of the center ball (that is just glued on), the crown, and the two things that go around the dowel (the heart thing and the ring under it).

:D

Check the WIP linked in the description because it shows a lot of the details. ^__^

The clay stuff is mostly decorative; the wood is most of the structure and I used dowels and epoxy to put it all together. :D

You're so ridiculously crafty, girl, I can't even handle it!!
In my apartment, we have one theatre major (me), two art majors (one in print making/pottery and the other in...I dunno what Jenna does, but she does make spoon rings!!) and then the oddball nursing major, haha. I mean, I should be used to awesome craft things, but you take things to the ultimate level!! Cannot wait to see it done.
