51  Papier/ Fabric Mache Dragon in Completed Projects by Artisan82 on: October 24, 2008 03:19:05 PM
One of my co-worker's sons is obsessed with dragons.  Smiley  He's only 11, but he can draw the most amazing dragon's I've ever seen.  For his birthday, I took one of his dragon drawings and made it into a papier mache dragon.  Him mom is giving it to him for his birthday (tonight!).  I think he'll be really excited when he sees it.  Unfortunately, the original drawings is too light to scan - but trust me, it was awesome.  This kid sure know's his dragon anatomy.
I took some pics of the finished dragon this morning on my ice-crystal encrusted fence.
Here he is:

52  Papier Mache Monkey in Completed Projects by Artisan82 on: October 04, 2008 05:45:54 PM
This is my papier mache monkey.  His basic structure is made of balled-up grocery bags.  Then I wired his arms/legs/tail onto his head and body and covered the whole thing in cloth strips dipped in white glue.  His "skin" is papier mache pulp mixed with some saw dust for texture.  I made him to test out my pulp recipe before completing a bigger project that I have in the works.
His eyes and teeth are made of modeling clay which I covered in resin to make glossy and wet-looking.

53  Sugar Skull Resin & Polymer Clay Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Artisan82 on: October 04, 2008 05:12:53 PM
I painstakingly made these sugar skull out of polymer clay.  Each different colour is a different bit of clay - it's not painted on.  I really love them.  I'm going to make my favourite into a necklace I think.  I'll have to save the others for the next time we have a Mexican theme party (Tequilla!).

Here's a Craftster inspired pendant too, just for fun.  Yup - thos are tiny little polymer clay scissors.

I made these babies yesturday.  I made the tiny little figures out of polymer clay (Sculpey), baked 'em, then resined 'em.  I think I'll make them into necklaces.
I love 'em!

Well, my husband made it home from Malasia safe and sound AND with our camera.  So I can finally post photos of the placemats I received from athenamat.

Thanks athenamat for being my first swap partner!

Athenamat received, so I'm posting my paintings - wich I'm SOOO proud of. (I've received from her also, but my husband has the camera with him in Malasia - so I have to wait until then to post pics of my great placemats.)

Here's the paintings of her cats, Calvin and Hobbes.

And here's the painting of my dog, Koji:

57  The Spooky 4-foot Papier Mache Halloween Tree in Halloween Costumes by Artisan82 on: July 30, 2008 03:10:04 PM
I totally LOVE Halloween.  I start thinking about it in about August of every year, so I thought it was appropriate to post this guy... I built him for display on my favourite holiday!  He's made of paper and fabric mache and he's about 4ish feet tall.  I tried to make his teeth look like cracked and split wood to add to the "tree-like" effect.

Unfortunately, my husband puts on a Scooby-Doo costume and totally upstages my tree with all the kids on Halloween... but I still love my tree.

Here's my naked Mrs. Lovett (see Sweeney Todd).  I love her!  I wanted her to bend at the knees and elbows, so I altered the pattern a little.  I also did the jointing on the outside because I wanted that type of look for this doll.  She's 140% of the original poppet size.

Now I just have to sew her clothes and her partner in crime, Mr. Sweeney Todd.  Grin  I'd also like to make her a little meat pie out of sculpey.

Mr.Todd and Mrs. Lovett will have their own post when they're done.

Well I just whipped this change in with my drafting software (not trying to steal thunder Craftewoman!).  I think this would work well, you'd have to just shape the belly with stuffing.

If anyone tries this, I'd live to see! Would their be any way to have a little pouch inside with an opening in her lady parts so that you could stuff a tiny poppet in there and she could give birth?  Is it totally gross and wierd that I thought of this???

SHE's FINALLY DONE!  Whew! This one was a job and a half,  (3 heads, 2 torsos...)  but I'm pretty proud of her in the end.

Here's the link to her thread, and a teaser pic:
