Its been a long time since I made some of these and they are better than the ones I made before. Despite running down Cernit, I seem to been sculpting with it more. I like the translucency of the clay and its tones.
The pendants are mounted on vintage optical lenses, I was lucky about 7 years ago to buy a box with a few in and I still have some left.
I am at the moment in touch with my fantasy roots, which, is where I started. I have had a good think and whilst I enjoy the miniatures I am going to make some larger pieces.
I loved making Baba Yaga and recently took her into school to show the students, I got a good response from them. a) Miss you never made that and b) Miss thats scarey LOL. They were secondary school kids and not pre-school.
I have been working on a project for Dolls House and Miniature Scene, which has taken ages to do and its for one of their project booklets. Its a Wizards house, its made from foam board and all sorts of other stuff. This will be out of the way by tomorrow and then I will hopefully get some scupting done while I am off for the holiday.
The one thing I have decided to do is go with the flow more and say less about future stuff because I change my mind and then things dont materialise. I have a low boredom level.
I know I mainly make miniatures but I sometimes forget that I like making other things too. I had a block of cernit that I didnt get on with so I made an armature from silver foil and paper and cracked on with this.
I dont really like cernit, its sticky and hasnt got the movement in it that I like but it does hold its shape and I really like the way the clay fires and takes colour. I think its better for larger pieces rather than small ones.
She went together like a dream no fuss, no fighting either LOL
Her hair is combed out fleece with conditioner left in to make it look greasy. I have a large bag of this stuff but I have to comb out the locks with detangler before I can use it.
Vintage Victorian button and antique lace.
Teeth and a hairy wart.
Hand in situ to give an indication of size. The bowl you can see was one of hundreds that I made at university when doing my degree.
A shot of our newly decorated bedroom. The chest has lots of printing blocks in it.
A little distressed bell ornament I brought on holiday and a ragdoll fairy I made years ago.
A new enamel shabby candle holder with lavender sitting on vintage/antique lace.
My victorian flat iron and a bunch of faux keys.
The glass soda syphon my Dad dug up out of a garden years ago. My old singer sewing maching and a reproduction Victorian bed cap.
So far this half term holiday, one decorated bedroom, one holiday (3 days in Wales) and one new sculpt.
I have also got into Miniatura for September so I am going to start making stock the weekend.
