Hi everyone!  I've started working on a new photography project with my husband.  He wants to dress our friends up as contemporary fantasy creatures.  

*New ones!*



These were made with foam cones, cut on the diagonal and sections turned, I then wired and duct taped (yes, duct tape!  I couldn't find my glue gun and was worried about melting the foam anyway) together, then added onto with paper, and then papier mache'd over, using the tissue paper and watered down glue I used for the pair below.  Then they were painted black with silver veins.  The only other thing I did was to scoop out the base a little bit, to make sure it'll sit firmly against a head.  I'm really pleased with how these came out, because for a while they were looking iffy.  They're about 1' long, more or less.

This is the first piece I've completed for him, but there will be several more to come!



These little horns (which are currently sitting on top of a styrofoam bowl) were made out of polymer clay, and then covered with tissue paper drenched in a watered down glue (one of my new favorite papier mache' techniques, because of the texture it gives), and then painted.  This was my first time making horns, or combining poly clay with something else, or really doing papier mache' since I was a little kid, so there were a lot of times I was unsure, but overall, I'm very happy with how they came out!



And, because I've posted these before, I figured I'd just add these into this post as well, I've made three pairs of these, which will be used for this same photo shoot, the rest will live in the dance studio where I take classes, which also hosts "princess parties".



And three pairs of these, which will also be used for the photo shoot, and living in the dance studio.  This is a new design, but I think I'm going to tweak it.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Thanks you guys!  I know these pictures aren't exciting AT ALL, but part of that is because I want the final pictures to really WOW!  But at the same time, I'm excited about trying new stuff and I don't want to wait to post everything!
