I made these for Acadian Driftwood in the WC&EF swap.  I love both Kodama and mushrooms, so when she listed them as some of her forest faves I couldn't resist.  The sitting Kodama, and the one with the stake coming out of it's foot are potted plant/garden decor.  The Kodama with the blue ribbon is an ornament.  She mentioned wanting an ornament for her car, so I thought she might like this.  I decided to make the mushroom a pendant.  I used colored clay for all of them, and then I glazed with sculpey glaze.  Super simple.  They all have fingerprints, dust, and other such imperfections.  Not sure if that sucks or just adds character.   Undecided









I couldn't resist making myself a Kodama for my planted terrarium




I wanted to make myself an amanita too, but I used the last of my white on this one.  I love sculpting even though I'm not very good at it.  I think I'll just embrace my primitive style rather than stress myself out over being good at it.  I'm happy with that.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

It's the loving it that's important!  I especially like the one you made for yourself.  Smiley

Thanks!

CaraLynn, they are forest spirits from the anime movie Princess Mononoke.  You can see clips of them on youtube if you are interested.  Smiley

I love them all! And I don't think anything "woodland" is supposed to be clean.  Tongue Leaving fingerprints is like signing your work!

Thanks!  I'm tickled that you like them.  Especially since I liked them too.  Makes it easier to part with stuff when you know it will be appreciated.   Grin
