Got started on my chair
At last I have started on a project on which I have been sitting as I had other things intruding and not feeling well amongst other things. This is a Fairy chair class which I am taking with Jean Bernard a wonderful mixed media artist. The chair is sculpted from Apoxy clay. Infact I should have done it with Apoxy sculpt but went and ordered the wrong stuff. Anyway Jean said I could do it with the clay. I bought it from a uk supplier and I have to make a complaint to them as it seems to be rather hard. I believe it should really be very soft. Since they seem to be the only suppliers in this country I can't really go and buy else where. Buying from outside the country is very expensive postage wise. But since I can still use it I decided to make a start on the project. The face was made from a little bit of left over apoxy. The real class face has some lovely bangs but unfortunately since the clay I got is hard I can't really make it look soft. However I have sort of grown to like the look of this one.
