Howdy to everyone out there in blog land. I am back from my trip to Columbus to attend the Artistic Figures In Cloth art doll conference. It was a blast and I really did learn some great new techniques from Susie McMahon who was my teacher. She hails fro Tasmania Australia. The class was a three day sculpting workshop and I learned how to use paper clay in a more efficient way. Needless to say it was well worth it to me. I am tired, but energized too. Here is the figure I created.
She is tentatively called "Petitioning Nature for Mercy" and is a paper clay head over stuffed armatured body built on top of a brick. She has real twigs and decorative papers applied to create her skin and hair. Then painted with acrylic paints and mediums. I am trying to decide if I am going to offer this for the upcoming bricks along the journey auction or make another. It may be hard to give this one up.
Well, I am really pooped. So, I am off to get some rest before work starts tomorrow.
