The Halloween Gang!

Well, I did it!!! 

As some of you might know I have just started making Paper Clay dolls. This is all new to me so it really was fun. I had the support of a great group called "The Hive".  They have been so inspiring and a few helped me with some tricks of the trade. They are artist of all kinds and when you need help with anything, all you do is ask and someone will have the answer for you.

So now here it is....The Halloween Gang!!

My last two projects were the cat, who's name is Chester and the Candy Corn guy. The cat is made of syrofoam and paper clay and is attached to a box which is decorated with lace and buttons. 

Candy Corn guy is made of syrofoam and paper clay but his legs are wooden skewers.  I think he looks better in person cause he looks antique. I think the flash dulls him out and doesn't show all the wrinkles.  (Candy Corn Guys thinks he looks younger and sexier and chose this picture.)

I really don't know if he is completely done yet...he might get some arms and socks. We'll have to see if he will allow me to do that yet. 
He is just so excited about Halloween!!!

Hive Creative Challenge - Frank makes his debut!

I am so excited to introduce you to Frank. 


This is his big day in public. I hope he behaves himself and doesn't scare too many people!!

He was really fun to create. His head and body are made of Paper clay and Styrofoam, screws in his neck, springs for his arms and wooden dowels for his legs and he stands 14 inches tall.  I think he is ready to dance to "The Monster Mash"!!!!

A Free Art Course and The Witch is Done!

Still doing paper clay projects and my witch is done!! She is 8 1/2 inches tall and her black cape is made of paper from an old book. (not a great picture cause the batteries were going in the camera) I am also making Frank as in "Frankenstein" and he will be bigger at 13 inches. I am totally hooked on this clay and all the things you can do with it...wait till you see Frank. I will try to post a picture on his progress in the next couple of days after the camera gets it charge.

In the mean time I wanted to tell everyone about the FREE ART COURSE !!!
