Second Finished Sculpt of 2011
This is the second finished sculpt of the new year. He is a Lucky Kappa even though I incorrectly called him a Tengu. He is a Japanese goblin that lives in the mountain streams. He has a depression on the top of his head where there is water. If you trick him to spill his water he is then rendered immobile. So, I created this Lucky version for my friend Micha for Christmas. I couldn't post until we had our exchange today. He stands about 6-7 inches high and is made of polymer clay. His head cup is made from an acorn cap.
Here is a picture of the depression in the top of his head. I created the water from a tinted clear tar gel acrylic medium. This was a fun little piece to make. I think I may make a few more.
Hope your new year is going well so far. Have a great week ahead.
