Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all are doing well out there. Well, I managed to finish my self portrait challenge doll and earlier than I thought this time. I still have time to get some ornaments made. In the meantime, here's my mini me. The story is, this is myself twenty years into the future. I have become an eccentric old wizard. But, I am not the robe wearing type, so I am dressing myself in something a bit more modern. A little rough around the edges and I have let my hair and beard grow out a bit. When you're old and magical you can get away with it. He's a polymer clay head, hands and feet. His coat is a pieced together one made out of leather scraps from a leather coat I once wore. His hat is also made from the same leather as are his boot cuffs. Every piece of clothing is either hand sewn or glued.
Here is the close view of my head. The glasses were made by my partner Buck. He is really good at detail and these look like the ones I currently wear. I think I will hire him to make all of my accessories from no on. Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing my mini me. I hope to post about my ornaments and Chocolat show pieces soon. Until then, have a great week. Cio!
