21  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Talking Heads, or What I Made at Art Camp on: October 11, 2016 06:25:01 AM
cackle and I just got back yesterday from Stamford, CT, where we spent 4 exciting days going to "art camp" with Art Is...You. Every day there were tons of classes to choose from. Here's my favorite thing I made: this "Talking Head", from a class by Doreen Kassel. When I saw her work, I knew I had to take this class. I'm not very experienced with working with polymer clay, but I learned lots of great new techniques, and I'm really pleased with how my Talking Head turned out. Lookie!

This little gal (I named her "Precious") stands about 6" tall. But the cool thing about Talking Heads is that the body and heads are separate, so you can change them up at will.

Sometimes,  Precious is just a little piggy.

We had such a blast this year at art camp. I hope cackle posts what she did!
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Temperence and Auroria Play Amongst the Crypts on: September 29, 2016 08:29:52 AM
It's that time of year, so buckle up for Halloween crafts! I just finished up a couple of crypts, along with some Victorian girls in bat costumes.

First up: Temperence. She gets bored sitting at home, so she loves to decorate the crypts in the nearby cemetery. Here she's placed several carved pumpkins around the base of the crypt, and is busy stringing up some smaller jack o'lanterns to hang as lanterns. It's dusk, and she's evidently disturbed a few bats, who fly around her head.

To help Temperence stand out, I used adhesive foam tape to attach her to the crypt. The columns and the black vines also help to give this piece a 3D look.

Here's Temperence's younger sister, Auroria. She's known as a bit of a flibbertigibbet. Somehow, she's managed to open the spiderweb gate and gain admission to the interior of this crypt. She hasn't got a care in the world, running around with her glowing jack o'lantern and her three skully balloons. I hope that rat doesn't bite her. That sucker is huge!

A little sideview of the gates. The gates are made of chipboard. I used paint and copic markers to make the columns look a little more like they're made of marble. I toyed with the idea of painting the webbed gate black, but I liked the way the brown color looked with the "bricks" of the crypt.

Happy Halloween!
