How to Make a Mixed Media Christmas Angel Sculpture


Hello and welcome! Today I will share with you how to make a Christmas Angel. This tutorial complements my “How to Make Lace Angel Wings” tutorial.  It is a mixed media sculpture made from a bottle, along with a few other items and Creative Paper Clay®. Isn’t she beautiful?

I hate to throw bottles and jars away so I have quite a collection. Some time ago I decided to start using them in my sculptures as armatures for “Mixed Media Bottle Dolls”. This angel is one of my creations. I made a video of my process so you too can begin using glass bottles in your art.

The supplies needed are as follows:

  • glass bottle
  • 1/4″ dowel
  • styrofoam ball (I used 1. 85″ / 4.7cm)
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • foil
  • Creative paperclay®
  • white glue
  • acrylic paints – I used Deco Art Multi Surface Satin Buff Beige for the face, neck and hands and Cocoa Bean for the hair. For the dress I used Crafters Acrylic Antique White and White. For the trim I used Martha Stewart Metallics Yellow Gold.
  • colored pencils
  • black gel pen
  • chalk pastels
  • assortment of tinsel/ribbons for halo
  • angel wings – see How to Make Angel Wings

I do hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Happy holidays and thanks for stopping by!
