Dead Astaire loves to dance but his dance card is empty.  He will give you this black rose bud if you'll dance with him.

This is my original ink drawing that I based my sculpture off of.  I make an ink drawing first then craft either my necklace charms or sculptures from them.  Lately, though, my ink drawings have been better than either my charms or sculptures.  Except for Dead Astaire, he turned out wonderfully.  I placed the sculpture next to the drawing for comparison.

I was telling my husband that I need to start framing and displaying all my ink drawings.  They would make wonderful artwork.

What do you use for your sculpting materials?

Mostly, I make these from white polymer clay with some 16 gauge wire snippets helping secure the head and arms to the body. The rest is just acrylic paint. For other sculptures i sometimes use grommets, screws, nuts, etc for decoration.

I realized after I asked that you posted in the polymer clay section but it doesn't look like polymer, that's really cool.  Nice work!

I love him! The drawing and the sculpture look so good together. It would be cool to have a collection of drawings and sculptures displayed in a shadow box.
