You all are really making me blush.  GatbysRevolver - it was painted after it dried but all the sculpting was done with crayola model magic Smiley  There are 'process' photos in the blog link I just tried to not be too superfluous with images here Smiley
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Son's of Anarchy swap? on: September 28, 2009 01:10:59 PM
I really have no desire to organize anything but want to throw this out there into the pool of wonderful ideas - Any interest in a Son's of Anarchy themed swap? 

It's an amazing show, so well thought out, wonderful characters and complex story lines - albeit possibly a bit on the touchy or dark side of things But you've got guns - motorcycles - bikers - porn stars - doctors - FBI - mayhem and more - the ideas for potential crafting are quite deep.

If you've not seen it the first season is just now available on DVD (and for netflix users you can watch it online) and the 2nd season is on the 4th episode tomorrow night Comes on FX tuesday nights 10pm (at least in the pacific time zone) 

I'd most likely want to participate just don't know I can wrap my head around organizing right now.

Peace and love - April

yeah I'm working on getting some in progress shots up I've been trying to get in the practice of taking lots of photos as I work to make it a 'habit' rather than an afterthought.  The only other thing I used aside from my hands to sculpt it was a toothpick. Now I need to work out what to do with the remaining clay in the bag I opened so I don't waste it Smiley

Thank you Smiley The most impressive thing is probably the materials lol.  It's made from crayola model magic. I love that stuff it's so fun to work with (but I've also been working with it since it came out in the early 90's)

I have about 5 minutes before I have to leave to pick up the kids from school but wanted to get this up before I go, just finished it and I'm real pleased (I'd posted last night for opinions on coloring the octopus)

So just to update a little - it's made with crayola model magic and the only 'tool' I used is a toothpick.  It took about 30 hours in total to make.

Opinions greatly appreciated!
