Okay I am going to make this short cause I burned the crap out of my finger earlier tonight (stupid overstuffed grilled cheeses) and really just want to take an ice pack and go to bed. SCREW YOU, WEDNESDAY!!! It’s four minutes to Thursday. whew.
Here is my progress this week:
I made these sun and moon heads many many months ago and have finally resolved to finish them… It has been a four-stage sculpt with many trips through the oven… Lesson learned: Don’t rest them on their little tiny fingers.
Because, as you can see in the picture above of Mr. Moon, those fingers will just break right off. As will their arms. But really, it’s the fingers that suck.
In happier news, I made this cute little candy corn guy and figured out an easy way to make the spindly little legs I like and make them paintable and stuff, so I will work on that tomorrow. But for now, Rawr:
I also am working on a box full of Day of the Dead peg doll couples – these are the big pegs, so about 3.5 inches tall. Cute little skull heads:
Some boys and some girls, but they all have little tiny roses. The dudes have boutonnieres and the girls have roses on their heads. LITTLE TEENY TINY ROSES. The leaves are probably about the size of a grain of rice:
So yeah, I have a lot of painting to do. I have two shows in the next 3.5 weeks, so I have a lot of work to do. I’m going to give up on Wednesday and go to bed. Tomorrow I’ll hope for smoother sailing.
I hope your week is awesome!
