I made this for my husband for Christmas. He used to be a butcher many moons ago and is still smitten with meaty things. He smokes his own bacon, makes his own sausage and even dries his own meats. Basically, he feels the same way about meat as I feel about crafting
The outside measurements are around 7.5" x 5.8". It's pretty dang small and the inside space was even teenier so it was a chore to arrange all the inside bits and still have it close up. Here's a business card and pencil for size reference...
I made all of the meats with polymer clay. I'm usually pretty relaxed with the realism in my work so this level of non-imaginaryness was a change for me.
And that's that! Now to wrap this sucker up and hide it before he peeks... he is a total peeker. Seriously, worse than my kid
It's seems like forever since I posted in here but I refuse to let this thread die!
I'm making a little something for my hubs for Christmas... and since I can't show it off anywhere else because of his peeking eyes I'm sharing here
It's not completely done yet but I'm so proud I couldn't wait to show it off. He used to be a butcher and still cures his own meats and makes sausages and stuff from home so I've made him this little shop including all of the contents
My neighbour volunteers at a charity/thrift shop and brings me loads of great stuff. A couple of weeks ago she dropped off an empty clock box. I knew right away that I wanted to create a little wonderland inside.
The piece can be viewed from either side. One side features a little cottage, the other a tiny snowman.
This fellow is a smidge smaller than the one in this piece.
I had a design team assignment from Petaloo to create something with their products, and products from Xyron and Core'dinations for a Halloween blog hop, and because they are super cool they let me create whatever pops into my head. So, I made these two 'Masters of Horror' portraits featuring Edgar A Poe and HP Lovecraft
The tentacles are made from polymer clay
I'm pretty sure that's a turkey feather, not a raven's... but I know you won't spoil the secret
