I have completed three new sculpts that were done after the secret postcard entries for Artworks Cincinnati this year. Unfortunately I will have to wait to post those pics until after the event. We are supposed to keep them a secret until then. Anyway this series are really small. Two of them are 4x6 and other is a 5x5 square one. The one on the top is called "Buddha of the Four Directions". The one in the middle is called "House Spirit" and the one at the bottom is entitled "My Muse".
The sculpts are made out of Polymer clay over a stretched canvas. I have a bunch of these little canvas' and thought why not cover them with clay. It seems to work just fine on the small ones. I would not attempt anything larger with this process. After the clay was cured, I applied several layers of acrylic paints and glazes to get the finished result. I embedded glass beads prior to baking for added bling. Hope you enjoy.
