Well Hello Again blogger friends.

I just realized it has been a month since I last posted anything.  Wow!  Time sure flies.  What have I been doing?  I am so glad that you asked.  Jazzy and I took on a huge project this time.  I really tested all our skills.  We sculpted a bard doll out of polymer clay and then costumed him.  He is clay, fabric, leather and wire armature. The base was created from a slice of a felled Aspen tree and a piece of driftwood from our yard- (Do not ask me how lucky I feel.  That piece of driftwood could not have been anymore perfect.)  Now before I show you the picture you must understand a couple of things.  1.  this is our first sculpture and 2.  we do not know how to sew. (thank goodness for liquid stitch)

Here he is:

I started this project from Dawn Schiller’s book Faemaker.  I thought I was going to make Fetch. Then I purchased Wendy Froud’s Dvd Making a Faery figure and Creating a character figure.  As I sculpted, I used techniques from both artists as well as others on the net and next thing I knew, I had Zephan the Bard.

I hope you like him.  Jazz and I sure had fun making him.
