Steampunk Dress Sculpture

Hello Makers!

Got Gears? I do. In my my Steampunk dress sculpture I call "Pretty in Steel", sorta a play on the classic movie title "Pretty in Pink", if anyone remembers. This dress measures 11 inches in height and is about 7 inches at its widest point. I made this dress using polymer clay. I used about 2 pounds of clay. I did it in sections. I would add clay, metal faux screws, rivets, and gears, then bake. This way I can handle the piece while trying to add clay and keep from distorting the clay. I hope you like my dress.
