Tennessee’s Julia Michelle (aka GodsFlyingFlowers) makes full-detail polymer clay butterflies with a wingspan of 1/16″ to 1/4″. She prides herself on the authenticity of the small creatures for which she has a passion.
“I’ve been told often that pictures don’t do justice to how tiny and intricate the butterflies look when actually seen in person,” she says. I had to flip through her Etsy gallery several times before the size would register in my head.
Thanks to Susan Lomuto (DailyArtMuse) for sending us this tiny treasure.
Wow, that’s amazing she can make those so tiny! I just wonder why would I want to buy something SO tiny? I’d be afraid I’d lose it! I’m not sure quite what you would do with it, really. Amazing though, nonetheless. I love your blog and come here almost daily. Great job and great design and great content! Thanks, Cynthia!
I have several of Julias miniature butterflies and while the scale isnt what it should be for Barbie dolls, I use them in my displays of my Barbie collection. They’re just the most adoreable little flutterbyes I’ve ever seen! Her other work is all just as incredible from her holiday & fairy scenes to the fun little things she’s made and posted on her website http://juliasminiatures.tripod.com/index.html She’s such an inspiration! Her work is always very unique and uplifting its great to see she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves!
