Archimedes the MechOwlie by monsterkookies Archimedes the MechOwlie by monsterkookies
This is my very first Mechanical Owl. I made it as a request, as many people were asking me to attempt one. I don't get to experiment with new designs as much as I would like to, but I wanted to make time for this little fella. I try to make time as often as I can for new and interesting things! I don't want you guys to get bored. Hehe.

After many folks started suggesting names for this little guy, we settled on "Archimedes" - named after the Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. It suits him!

He is all sorts of metallic colours, actually. There are coppers and brass, mostly... but also a tiny bit of mauve and green, as well. I gave him a little copper accent on top of his head.

Although this creature looks to be made from metal, he is not - he is completely handsculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few metal findings and wire legs. This piece has been glazed with a satin finish for a slight sheen and durability.

Hi, I love this, your so talented and inspiring. I actually stopped by for a little help though if you wouldn't mind. I want to make parts of some of my creations metallic, I've found the metallic fimo powders online, but only in bronze, silver and gold, but I wanted other colours. Iv just lost an ebay auction of a set of clay metallic powders that had purple, red, green and blue in but I cant find other colours anywhere. Could you help me? I'm assuming fimo don't do the other colours anymore (the ones on ebay were described as fimo ones, but from a few years ago). Sorry for the long post, and thankyou for your time x

Definitely look for a brand called "Pearl Ex" - they make mica powders in every colour of the rainbow! :D Polymer Clay Express (an online store) sells them separately and in variety packs. :)
