Trying new things…

Hello all. In BPCAG we are doing what is called “Sculpting Practice Rounds”, and this week practice round is the female head. Seeing as I’ve NEVER EVER sculpted anything, this was a little daunting for me. But, I want to do this sooooo bad. So I’m jumping in. With great support from these wonderful ladies of the group, and armed with quite a few different tutorials. Here is a sample of the head I am working on now:

So far this attempt is going okay. I’m trying to be optimistic about it. Even though being optimistic is quite alien to me. 😉 Here is a side shot:

She is entirely polymer clay right now. I tried doing it with a foil ball armature underneath the clay, but I couldn’t get her smooth at all. This seems to be better. I will try to post more as I progress with her. Thanks!

TTFN!

Happy end of the holidays!!!

Just wanted to say happy end of the holidays and the sleepy resting time. *sigh* Back to life as usual. The kids are back home, they got back on saturday. It was hard having them gone for the entire 2 weeks. My daughter has announced that she is ready to spend this comming summer at her grandma’s house in South Carolina. *screams* Jake barely lasted this 2 weeks WITH his dad, he wouldn’t survive that out there. We’ll have to see how things go.

I’m happy to finally be able to share my lil christmas tree with you all. I had to keep it offline till the challenge through the email group was over. But here it is.

Its made of an aluminum foil armature covered in polymer clay. I’m quite proud of it. It tied for 2nd place out of 4 entries. I actually made each leaf on this tree, and put them on individually. *VBG*

That’s all for now unfortunately I need to get back to work.
TTFN!
