W.I.P. #2

I am trying to keep to my posting at least twice a week.  So, I am going to be showing some WIP's I am working on now.  This is another piece I am working on for AFIC.  This is going to be a goblin boy riding a sled.  I created the head originally back in 2002 at a retreat my local doll club does each June.  Who would of thought this would someday become a goblin.  I am excited about the piece so far.  I have the armatures for the hands shown here in the first picture.

Here is a close up of the head as it is now.  It has been reworked a bit from the original.  I am sculpting him in paper clay this time instead of polymer clay.  The clays have such different feels and working properties, that it is good to switch them up once in a while.  It has inspired a few more ideas to come I hope.  I keep forgetting how light weight paper clay is when it is dry.  It is easy to paint and is extremely strong with an armature.  I have tons of Styrofoam eggs I can use as armatures for a few things too.

I am coming down to the wire as far as getting work done for AFIC (Artistic Figures In Cloth).  I am excited about the classes I am teaching and all the fun to be had.  Until next time....

Nice one, Cody!
AFIC is looming large - I will seek you out when I get there. I'm in Chicago at present - just got an eyeful of wondrous things at the International Quilt Fair here. I'm not really a quilter, but I can appreciate what goes into some of that astounding work!
Cheers, Susie (Tasmanian At Large)
