Helllo everyone! I've been gone from Craftster for ages. Yowza. Sad I haven't posted in this thread before, but I've started getting really into sculpting again. I've just been starting with small pieces, but they have been really fun and I hope to work on some larger pieces soon. Everyone here has always been so supportive of each other and I'm blown away with how talented people are! It is so inspiring, so I hope to be on here much more often.

Made from polymer clay, acrylics and little scraps of metal and jewelry for adornments.

I'm really diggin' making these metal bookmarks.. so pretty!




I finished a few more yesterday and made them into keychains:








And lastly, a pair of earrings. They were two of the first skulls I tried making, so they are a little simpler in design. Smiley :

I love how they aren't perfectly proportional skulls! =o It makes them so much more fun. I especially like the 4th and 5th one from the top XD so cute

Thanks! ^__^ And yes, they are definitely far from proportional or accurate. It does indeed make it more enjoyable to make them, since each of them look very different from one another.

They're all great!  I think the earrings are my faves, but I could really use a bookmark too.   Grin
