Last of the small ones...



Today's offerings are the last of the small sea goblins. I have run out of shells. The only shells I have left are large conch shells and that will be for a much larger scale project for later in the summer. I have so many ideas and projects started that it is hard to focus. Anyhoo, here are the latest of the sea goblin clan. The first guy here is in a nautilus or sea snail shell. He has made himself quite comfortable. He is made of Polymer clay and has hematite eyes.


Here is another view of him. I liked how these pictures turned out. Who would have thought an old bath towel would make a good background.


This guy is quite small. Approximately 2-1/2 inches tall. He is contemplating his place in the universe and is feeling a bit overwhelmed. His eyes are glass beads and he is polymer clay as well. He sitting inside a small weathered shell I found on the beach in Myrtle Beach SC. That seems like an eternity now. You never know when you might use that odd bit of something that you question keeping. I hope you enjoy these guys. Hopefully they will make their way to Etsy soon.

Hi Cody
I've enjoyed looking at these - one question/suggestion - have you tried the Sculpy dilutent at all - I noticed on the sculpt pics there were some little bits of rough (hard to smooth out such tiny creatures) I'd never used the dilutent before I did a class earlier in the year with Bobbi Oliver - used sparingly it helps to clean up those little bits. I don't know how you sculpt something so small - you must be very patient!

Thanks for the advise on the diluent. I have some of that and will give it a try. You would think I am nuts if you knew realized I am legally blind and do these.
