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!

Okay, so after a week of a few doctor visits, and my actually getting back on my meds. I really feel so much better. I’m not feeling like life is stomping all over me. So much so that I actaully got to play with clay this weekend, and the good thing is it was all for an ORDER, yes an actual order for christmas pins. Here are the 3 versions I came up with these to the right. They are each about 2 inches high. The buyer loved them, I’m proud to say. And I’m quite happy with how they turned out as well. I am going to sit down tonight and make up another batch for my family members as well.

Back to work I go!! TTFN!
