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.
