New Year, New WOrk

New work for this great new year ahead of us. Here is a small piece called a sea dragon. He is about 4 inches in length and lives in his purple sea shell. He is sculpted out of polymer clay and then painted with acrylics. He has glass bead eyes. This is a front on shot of him.

Here we have a side view of the little guy. There is a metal loop built into him so that he can hang as an ornament.

This is a work in progress. He isn't sitting on his stump yet. He will be a forest story teller. I had him started before Christmas actually. Initially he was going to be a goblin Santa for a friend but, decided that he wasn't a Santa ofter all. This is my first attempt at making a character with hooved feet.

Here is a side of him. He has a furry tail of sorts and a little mane of hair too. His eyes are glass beads and he is a polymer clay sculpt. Hand painted with a variety of glazes and then antiqued which is my signature look.

So, that is what I have been up to so far. I am planning on doing a few more sea goblins or dragons as I was given a nice little stash of sea shells for Christmas from a friend. Until next time.
