Ok, so I know you guys (probably) don't know my friend Keli (http://www.myspace.com/louisvillekeli), but I made a figurine of her for her birthday!

(the yellow thing next to her name is a toy camera...she's into photography)

Isn't it coooool? I try not to brag, but I'm super duper proud of it! The last time I made a figurine of someone I knew personally, they hated it, so...yeah. I'm happy with this one. :-D

Secondly, I made one of Uma Thurman awhile back, but I don't believe I posted pics of her (please correct me if I'm wrong)...

She is currently on display at a local video store. Yay!

They look great. Do they take much to make?

Thanks guys!

Devilgirl, I make them out of Sculpey III...I've heard it's oneo f the weaker clays, but it's cheap, and I'm cheap (hehe), and so far the only problems I've had with breakage are Uma's arm (because she's displayed in public, people want to touch her and pick her up. I'm looking into getting some osrt of glas display case), and one time I threw a figure at a wall just to see how much damage could be caused if I ever dropped one, and all that broke was the neck, and it was a rather clean break that wouldn't show up if I glued it back.

Jehnaier, I believe Uma took about 3 and a half blocks of Sculpey to complete...I think Keli took more like 4 or 4 and a half. I didn't intend for it, but my figures seem to be geting larger and larger, I made Keli and Uma one right after the other, but Uma only goes up to Keli's shoulder. They're about 6-7 inches tall, and they take asl ittle as four days to as long as two weeks or so. It depends on how tricky some of the parts are and how enthusiastic I am about making the figure.
