I know you probably think I am manic out there. What the heck is he posting everyday now? Well, when you got'em, post'em I say. So, without further ado. May I present my first offering for the upcoming Halloween season my "Dearly Departed" series. There are eight total so far and they are magnets. They are the ghostly images of the dearly departed. Whose you might wonder? I'll never tell. Just their names. I used some molds I made to create the faces to save time. These were actually meant to be studies for some larger pieces I am in the planning stages with. I plan on posting two a day. The heads are polymer clay and then I used acrylic mediums and fabric and paper to make the shroud like parts. Then they were painted and glazed. They measure about the size of an artist trading card or a bit smaller.
The above image is of Dearly Departed cousin Tillie. Tillie poor Tillie, got kicked in the head by the nasty filly.
Here we have Dearly Departed Grand Nephew Gus. Poor poor Gus, didn't notice, he didn't notice the bus. Ran over and dragged, poor dear grand nephew Gus.
Tomorrow is the beginning of Autumn. I am so excited as it is my fave time of the year. I will post two more spirits tomorrow.
