Ah...my Berner, Comet is in the background. He's never too far from me.

used Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow and Jacquard water based resist on an old and less than sparkling white kids Tee.
Thanks for looking.

My model was somewhat reluctant....

Edit: Am I in the wrong category with this?

3  No...it's not a dead fish. ( it was never alive.)Better photo added. in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by karmickaboom on: July 01, 2008 07:41:50 AM

And a clearer pic while out of the water.

I made a fishy...because I just love fish. I put him in the waterfall for my pond and well away from my very curious real pond fish... my Mom said it looks dead at the angle it is sitting, and I agree. But nope...never was alive.

Materials...regular air dried earth clay for an armature of sorts...fish dont require much armature if they aren't going to swim. And then I built up the fish with Magic Sculpt...an air drying epoxy clay that I LOVE. ( and it is water proof!)And then I used those glass marble things, and watered down acrylic paint and also ...gold stuff that is wax based. It is about 9 inches long...took...not long in actual working time.
I think he is adorable...even if it is in a dead fishy kind of way.

4  Some bronze... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by karmickaboom on: June 28, 2008 05:02:56 PM

This is titled "The burden" The egg is being used as a symbol for life. It was done as a way of managing the emotions involved when my husband was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer. A disease that he was responsible for having given himself...and which killed him.

This is untitled

Both are cast in bronze using the lost wax process.

6  A nude and a skull ( tasteful nudity warning) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by karmickaboom on: December 17, 2007 09:40:58 AM

The naked lady was an assignment for figure drawing class and the skull for figure modeling class.
The skull could have been better. I didn't give myself enough time because I foolishly under estimated the difficulty of the project. I only got a B- on it. The lady hasn't been graded. I am so happy I don't have to draw her but one more time. She has something strange going on with her breasts and it ends up looking like I messed up. I tried to downplay it in this one without drastically changing her anatomy. The pointy breast IS how she looks at some angles. I think she works out a lot, and has maybe overbuilt the muscles in her chest to the point of having less soft breast tissue than she naturally would have.
ok...sorry for the long explanation. I have to get to work on the back view of her now.

Oh...charcoal and clay. I am sure you can guess which is which.  Grin

8  hand studies in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by karmickaboom on: December 04, 2007 02:38:31 PM

They could be better, I know.

Oh...in case anyone is curious...
first hand is from a stock photo
second hand is my husband's
third hand is my own while knitting

also, no..I do not use drawing aids like grids, etc...these were for a figure drawing class where they wouldn't be allowed anyway.
I received a "B" on all three.
Thanks so much for looking and commenting!
