Now selling on eBay and Etsy!

I finally broke down and decided to go ahead and start listing my Art Dolls on eBay, and if they do not sell, they will be placed in my Etsy shop along with my Artisan Soaps.  So, all new Art Dolls will first be listed as 5 Day Auctions.  I cannot guarantee when I will start auctions until I get a little more settled in with eBay, but Mermaid Syreni will be my first listing.  You can find me on ebay @ virgosalchemy I will also place links here to live listings.  I will be re-listing my Mermaid in a Bottle after the turmoil with the hurricanes are over with, and will post the link here at that time. Thank you for your support! Unusually Yours,

Specimen Syreni - Now Available on Etsy!

I'd like to introduce you to Specimen Syreni (Mermaid Specimen). She is approx the equivalent of a 9.5" sculpture, but inside her tomb-like bottle, she is an impressive 16" in height.

She was sculpted purely by imagination and by hand, no molds were used in her making, and no casts have been taken of her. She is, and always will remain, One of a Kind.

Specimen Syreni's story is based on the ancient Renaissance, a time when creatures like this may still have existed, discovered, and taken for study.

Her skin was painted in purple and blue hues to simulate a preserved appearance. She is also covered in a high quality, non-yellowing, "liquid water" resin.

At her feet, a small glass orb represents the magic that was captured within this elusive being. She stands in a bed of black sand with tiny iridescent sparkles throughout, and a tiny tag that reads "Specimen Syreni" is tied to the top of her bottle, for proper identification purposes...of course!

She is not removable from her bottle, but her lid is removable for cleaning purposes only. Her glass bottle makes her fragile and highly collectible; not to be used as a toy or given to small children.

Her hair is a lovely rich burgundy Tibetan Mohair, and she was painted with high quality heat setting paints, and fired multiple times at specific times and temperatures to ensure longevity and quality, as all professional sculptures should be.

She will come with a certificate of authenticity which will be attached to the bottom of her bottle, signed.

Available Now on Etsy!

Click HERE for her listing! Thank you so much for your interest, and please contact me by using my "Send a Raven" page, if you have any questions.

Magic of Innocence - IADR WINNER!

My latest sculpture, Magic of Innocence is finally completed and I'm very proud to say was a WINNER in the 2016 IADR Art From the Soul Contest!  These are just "completion" photos, I will eventually have specific pages for each one of my sculptures with more professional quality photos soon.

 

I'm now beginning my next project, inspired by the movie "The Secret of Kells".

I will not be doing a WIP blog on this new project, but I will continue to update my blog on a regular basis.

I will also be doing a review video of the Never Knead. This device is a true God-send, suggested to me by my friend Nicole West, a fabulous fantasy art doll artist who I have grown to respect dearly over the years.

Please remember to bookmark Virgo's Alchemy and check in with me on my Instagram and Facebook page for other news, updates, and simple ramblings.

Much love to all of those showing me support and interest in my work!

-Yours Unusually,
