Chanterelle! Making Miniature Polymer Clay Mushroom Sculptures

The End of a Brief Hiatus

 

I’m a fan of the woods.

After a break since November, I have begun to delve back into the world of sculpture. Now that the holidays are over, focus can switch back from personal pieces to pieces for our shop.

I make almost all of our holiday gifts by hand, so it can be very time consuming. It is fun, but I am quite ready to get back to the world of polymer clay.


Mushroom Inspiration

This piece was a gift to my mother on her birthday early in January. I enjoyed it, and think I’ll be making more to offer for sale at our shop. It sparked my interest in going back into botanical works.

Mushrooms are certainly a subject enchanting to many. Personally, I find the stories of fairy rings to be wonderful, and the mysticism that lies in the lore of the woods in general, is always fascinating. To be honest with you, I don’t find it to be so much “lore”…

Mom is also into nature, and preserved things, dried things, found things, as am I. So, when I was thinking up what would be neat to make for her, this is what came to mind.

A mushroom collection, not quite so fragile as the real deal, however, a real dried mushroom sample is what I used as reference in this piece. This, was to be, a quaint collective of mushrooms with little insects that might be missed upon first glance, but found upon closer inspection!

An illustrator at heart, I enjoy adding things to any piece, no matter the medium, for the viewer to find. It’s fun, and you get to make up the story. Where is this mushroom? Have you found it hiking? Or are you a fairy resting on its cap? Are you a curious child roaming the woodland, plucking the precious fungi from its earthen home?


Making of (Tutorial)


Enough with all that, here is a video of the piece, and I will surely be making more. It’s not a true tutorial, but a bit of behind the scenes.
