Title: Talking Heads, or What I Made at Art Camp
Post by: rackycoo on October 11, 2016 06:25:01 AM
cackle and I just got back yesterday from Stamford, CT, where we spent 4 exciting days going to "art camp" with Art Is...You. Every day there were tons of classes to choose from. Here's my favorite thing I made: this "Talking Head", from a class by Doreen Kassel. When I saw her work, I knew I had to take this class. I'm not very experienced with working with polymer clay, but I learned lots of great new techniques, and I'm really pleased with how my Talking Head turned out. Lookie!


This little gal (I named her "Precious") stands about 6" tall. But the cool thing about Talking Heads is that the body and heads are separate, so you can change them up at will.


Sometimes,  Precious is just a little piggy.


We had such a blast this year at art camp. I hope cackle posts what she did!

 That is super neat. I never would have thought about detachable heads! I think the bunny ears one is my favorite. I love the little crown and the bangs!

I like both of the heads!  Love the finish on this piece...glad you learned a lot and hope to see more of this type of project!

The crown and all of the other details are just so nice...the little pleated skirt...

So adorable!  The work is just lovely, and her faces are so cute.  Hmmm, interchangeable heads - love this idea.  You are a constant source of inspiration.

Well, thanks! It was our instructor who came up with that idea. I think it would be fun to make heads for all seasons, like one with a witch hat, one with a Santa hat, and maybe one with sunglasses for the summer. Endless possibilities!
