In ancient days there was a certain very powerful enchanter known to men as Merlin the Wise: and he gave good counsel unto King Arthur
My second figure sculpted from Super Sculpey. I liked the Merlin figure I made for Marianne so much, that I had to make one for myself.
Media: Head and hands of Super Sculpey, on a wire armature with a cloth body. Painted blue eyes, white mohair. Robes of fine brocades, tattered and dirtied at the edges, since he would have worn them through forest and glen, over hill and dale, living in them day and night with never a wash.
Props: Magical staff of twisted reed with a glass orb held in place at the top with sculpted filigree. He has a dagger, and a bag of magical objects tied to the sash around his waist.
Height: 46 cm (18")
