The Blossom Princess - Gardens of the World collab

Daily Top 3 - May 23, 2015

Hi all!

This is a piece I made for my first ever collaboration (yay!), Gardens of the World. This piece was inspired by Japan, namely the mythological Blossom Princess, Konohana Sakuya Hime, or the Japanese Spirit of Spring. She’s also fabled to prevent mount Fuji from erupting, so that’s why it’s in the backdrop and the torii gate is shown at her shoulder (these gates mark the entrance to her shrines which are dotted all over the mountain).

This took a phenomenal amount of time and as I’d never sculpted a bust before I had to redo quite a few bits in the process. The whole thing is covered and sculpted in fondant to get the pure white for the skin – needless to say I now know why everyone uses MC instead!! Thanks to Liz Marek for her RKT vid on youtube and Kara Andretta for first showing the progress pics of her Threadcakes entry last year which seemed to have put ideas into my head :)

Thanks for looking!
