    Happy birthday to me and my twin! It’s our birthday today and this was my gift! 

    My sister gave this really cute gift to me on our birthday :>
    Thank you Romy ^^ 

    I made this card to go with the birthday present for my sister. I used cardstock paper, glue and a black fineliner.
    Happy Birthday Romy ♥

    Dipper & Mabel sculpture made by me

    Mabel was made in December 2013
    Dipper was made in March 2014

    Dipper Sculpture part 4
    Paint

    I started with priming my sculpture. I chose white mainly because that is what I’ve used before and I wanted to make the base white to match the Mabel sculpture I made earlier.
    The first skin color I mixed was too tan (you can see that in the second picture) and I had to redo it but everything after that went okay.
    I had such a hard time mixing the blue for his bodywarmer, I sat at least half an hour just mixing different shades of blue. In the end I consulted my mother and after that I thought I had the right shade but it still ended up being a tad too dark.

    Last details and smoothing

    I did the last details here and made everything as smooth as I could. I mostly used my fingers to do this.
    After I baked it I used 180 grid sandpaper and 240 grid after that. I’m using some higher grid sandpaper after this as well.

    Dipper Sculpture part 2
    Apoxie, Aluminium foil & Rough shapes

    You can’t see it in these pictures but I covered the parts where the different pieces of wire come together with apoxie to make it extra sturdy. After that I started sculpting very roughly. I put on a temporary face to look what facial expression I wanted. The facial expression in these pictures is the one I chose.
    I struggled a lot with his cap so I put hair temporarily on his head and also some other things to help me see how to get the right shapes and such.

    Dipper Sculpture part 1
    The wire armature

    I started with printing out a character sheet of Dipper and then I drew a stick figure on the image. Then I bend the wire to the same shape of my stick figure. After that I used some smaller wire to wrap all the pieces together. Up next is apoxie, aluminium foil and the rough shapes.

    Baby Tooth WIP

    I started painting the day before yesterday and finished it today. I first primed the sculpture with white spraypaint and then I began painting the whole thing blue (except the light colored parts, like her face, hands etc.). After that I just added more and more color to it. You can’t see it that well but her body actually goes from green-ish to blue.
