New Stuff...



I have been working on some new things for the studio open house coming next weekend.  I created a few wall pieces and still need to frame them.  This first one is "House Spirit #1".  He is the first one I made and is polymer clay over a canvas panel.  I used tissue paper and heavy acrylic gel medium to create the leafy texture.  I then painted and antiqued him.  He will be framed in a wide bamboo frame.



This is "house Spirit #2".  He was created using the same technique.  I will frame him in the same type of frame.


This is called the "Green Buddha" and is made as the house spirits above.  One thing I did not mention is that the panels were recycled failed paintings.  So, the Buddha lives up to the green theme of sorts.  I will frame him in a similar bamboo frame. Yes, I got them at a great price from a local Home Emporium store.  They were originally bamboo bowls.  Now they're frames.  I will get pictures of them on the wall once I get them framed.


Yes, I am posting another goblin here.  This piece was inspired by a wonderful artist named Dawn Schiller.  Her little Fae folk are so clever and wonderful.  She had some hermits and sea Fae folk that utilized sea shells.  I had some of these great shells and thought, Wow! I could make sea goblins.  So, here is Tantillis a Sea Goblin living in his nautilus shell.  He is a polymer clay sculpt with tiny glass bead eyes.  Painted with blue iridescent paint and antiqued with walnut stain.



This is the rear view of Tantillis.  Hope you enjoy the new stuff there is more to come.
