So this is a project I made for Christmas 2008 for my mom. She cries like a baby every time she reads "I Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch, so I thought I'd try my hand at polymer clay. This is the first thing I've made with it, and I think it turned out pretty good. I used acrylic paint on it (which was REALLLLY fun-- haha).
I wanted to paint it sort of messy, so it would be in the style of the book's illustrations, and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
It's based on this cover illustration:
Here's the pre-painting sculpture:
And here's what it looked like finished:
And a couple detail shots:
Thanks for looking!
