After completing the last art/handmade/craft show of the season (and for a while) I finally had some time to play with the Creative PaperClay I bought nearly two months ago. I have been chomping at the bit to experiment with art dolls and have seen PaperClay used as a medium quite often so I thought I’d try it out. It’s sort of awesome and sort of annoying. I’m obviously on the fence and still figuring it out. Anyway, this fellow was the result of my first experiment. I was supposed to be comicking but couldn’t put the PaperClay away and at some point I thought, “Why not use the lil’ guy I just made?! I’ll simply scrape off his nose and…”
Once the deed was done, I felt pretty awful. I’m looking at him right now with an apology on my lips. I wonder if artists like Beth Robinson (StrangeDolls.net) ever have a hard time bloodying up their dolls. I’m sure I’ve blogged her work before but her work is incredible so here’s another taste:
Oh well. Hopefully this little guy sees the humor in what I’ve done to him and wont chew off my own nose tonight while i sleep.
Keeping with the art doll theme, I made several doll head pendants available in my etsy store. Here’s who you’ll find:
You can find those girls in the new Doll Head Adornments section of my store.
That’s all for now. To those celebrating Christmas, have a very merry one!
(Maybe, I’ll put a new nose under the tree for my lil friend here so he stops looking at me like that….)
