Steampunk Oddfae first steps

My friend Jeannine and I decided to get busy and start working on some clay figures since we each have a number of online classes and DVD’s to work from. I chose this little guy from the online class I did with Dawn Schiller in the fall.

If you’ve never done any sculpting before, don’t be afraid to try it. Buy one of those small blocks of polymer clay for a couple of dollars and give it a try. It’s not as hard as you might think. This is only about the third time I’ve done it and each time it gets easier. Jack Johnston has some great things on his site, as well as Doll Street still has this particular class listed. Dawns instructions are very good and as long as you read the instructions and don’t just look at the pretty pictures, you will get this with no trouble. These are just a couple of examples, but there’s lots more out there to explore.

I’ve done the head and hands and I used Super Sculpey. I did leave the head in a bit longer and he did get a bit of a sunburn on the tips of his ears, but that’s okay. In real life it’s not really noticeable, it just shows more in the picture than what it really is. The left side shows it much darker, but it isn’t really, it’s just in shadow there.

We’re supposed to get a dump of snow for the next 2 or 3 days, so if that happens, Jeannine and I won’t be getting together until next week. Knowing me though, I most likely will keep moving along because I’m too impatient that way. I like to keep moving on a project or I lose my momentum…..hence the arrival of UFO’s from time to time.
