Iridescent Angel Phoenix Room Guardian FOR AUCTION by AnyaBoz Iridescent Angel Phoenix Room Guardian FOR AUCTION by AnyaBoz

The auction ends next Monday, April 17th 
BID HERE! www.ebay.com/itm/Iridescent-An…

This is seriously my proudest room guardian so far. I finally found a method for feathered wings that I like, and those feathers on the neck were all sewn on layer by later. It took a long time, but I absolutely love the effect!:love:

---------

In celebration of Spring, the season of rebirth, I present to you the Iridescent Angel Phoenix. A truly magnificent creature known to appear in the wake of a tragedy, often directly before a message of good news. It is known as a miracle bringer and can appear in many forms, from a human, to a dove, to a rainbow. This Phoenix is truly a beacon of light that illuminates just when a situation becomes too dark to find hope.

This phoenix has a clear quartz crystal heart. Its back stands about 6 inches tall with a wingspan of about 20" and a total length around 25". It has coat of high quality faux fur that is very soft. The neck features layer by layer of individually sewn fake flower petals, hand cut shimmer feathers, and real peacock feathers. The wings and tail are made from glittery craft foam, fake flower petals, and real feathers. 

This phoenix is completely poseable! It features ball jointed ears that can be rotated into different positions. Its neck and spine have a plastic ball and socket armature that will not wear over time. The hands are made from a flexible rubber with a wire core so even it's fingers bend. The legs, wings, and tail have a wire armature that is very flexible and the paws are jointed so they can move back and forth.

 1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
 The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they wer

So, technical questions: how did you make the joints of the hind paws? They look like they flex back and forth just above the toes, so are they indeed jointed? And if so, what kind of joints did you use for that particular section? They look like they have a limited rotation on just 1 axis, as opposed to a ball-and-socket joint. And as far as the ball-and-socket joints you described, do you make your own balls and sockets, or do you buy ball-and-socket joints somewhere? Where/how do you acquire the joints you use for these creatures?

Your poseable art dolls deeply and genuinely fascinate me, and sometimes I just wish I could sit next to you and watch you make one of these things from beginning to end, just to have the privilege of seeing you do it. It would undoubtedly be an eye-opening experience!

They are not ball and socket joints. I'm not entirely sure what kind of joint you would call these, but
you are right in that they only move back and forth. The paws I made, but the ball and socket joints
inside the neck and spine I purchase at www.crscraft.com. You can buy yards of the doll armature there.

I would really love to do a tutorial and/or a time lapse so people can watch the whole process. I've been 
wanting to do that for a long time, and I finally have a nice camera so I might just be doing it in the near
future!

I love that you used feathers again. The mixtures of colors is fantastic and are those pose-able back paws?

After all, who can resist such beauties?
