I thought it would be fun to make action figures for my co-workers this Christmas.  After playing around with them for several days I decided to make bobble heads instead.  As time got closer I just decided to use prefab bodies of snowmen that I bought and nix the moving heads.  The heads are about 2-2 1/2 inches in height and made from polymer clay.  Because I ran out of time, I purchased the bodies .... they were snowmen (the white one was a Santa though) and I took off their heads and replaced them with mine.  After I made the ones for my coworkers I also made some for my husband's father and brothers.  They loved them.  Hope you enjoy them too.

Sorry, photos are a little grainy... taken with my phone












Someone asked to see the actual people so here they are...again, sorry about the quality of the photos

Holy crap these are incredible! Yesterday someone linked http://fairiesndreams.com/eyetutorial.html for an eye tutorial. Is that how you do your eyes, too?

I love the eyes in the tutorial!  No, I created little white polymer eyes.. actually little balls and then painted the rest. Once in the face I covered them with a gloss.  Thanks for that link.

These are too awesome for words. I love the way the heads work so well with the bodies. Great job!
