Last week I started 1,982,781 projects. This week, I finished nine or ten of them, depending on how you count. What’s that? You vote for ten? GO ME I’M IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS!
First up, it’s a set of four Big Lebowski egg cups.
Gesso and paint.
Sketches. Usually, I sketch on gesso, but this time, I sketched on paint, which saved me a lot of sighing and re-sketching. Clearly, old dogs CAN learn new tricks . . . very, very slowly.
Hey, did somebody add clay collars to fatten up those ridiculously reedy little necks?
No one ever accused this group of being eggheads. Irish monks and pederasts, maybe, but not egg heads. Donny is gagged, by the way, and his gag says “Shut the @*?! up, Donny!”
Walter demanded to be on top. It’s part of his whole sick Cynthia thing.
The set is available in my shop and would make an excellent Christmas gift for your favorite fan of the Duder. You know. In the parlance of our times.
Next up, I finished a set of four Tudor bottle stoppers.
See that top hat?
Behold! The top hat is now the foundation for Henry’s head. As I consider this, I think he might not like it. Then again, I think I don’t really care about the opinions of men who behead their wives.
Clay and gesso on the wives. I had so much fun making their hoods.
And painting them! OMG details!
After I spray the figures, I hang them from a light fixture on plastic hangers with clippy bits so they can dry in peace. This is high tech stuff, I know.
Divorced. Beheaded. Died. Dirtbag.
That’s also in the shop!
Finally, you might remember this kissing couple that I posted on the blog several weeks back:
Originally, I was going to make a shrine with them, but I couldn’t figure out a design I liked that permitted easy access to the lever on the back that makes them kiss.
Aww! So smoochy! Anyway, since Christmas is coming, I decided to make them a Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera ornament.
And hey, I’ll bet you know where that is.
