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.
