My Return from Kentucky classes


I have been gone for almost a week so it has been quiet in my blog. Now I am back home and ready to share the week with you. This was a doll sculpting class where we used air dry clay to sculpt heads and then to cover the dried heads with cotton cloth. There were several steps of sanding, drying, using modeling paste, acrylic medium and finally paint. Most of the people in the class came out with some beautiful doll heads and most got them painted in a very realistic way. I will never do eyes like I used to do again. Not sure that my hands aren't too shaky to do the fine detail on the faces. Anyway, I made a demon's head and then found a wooden telephone bird feeder that I converted into a stand for the head. I have much more to do with this piece but it is definitely me. I guess I just don't do pretty very well.
We were asked to bring aprons. I decided to make an apron but it came out so cool, I couldn't take a chance to ruin it so I only wore it alittle while. Am glad to be home sort of, Phil is still looking for a job but it was a good time for a much needed break.
