He is done

I finished my little sprite or elf or yule baby whatever he is but I call him Twinkle for I think he has got an impish twinkle in his eye. Don't know what mischief he is up to. Looking at the picture now I can see what mistakes I have made but I am pretty much happy with the way he turned out. I am still learning to sculpt!

I have been working on this little fellow and at last I have made him smile I think. His eyes didn't turn out the way I wanted it to but he is much too small a figure for me to do anymore. I have been remiss in not mentioning that this is a class doll of Katheryn Walmsley who is a wonderful artist. This is an on line class Yule Baby in DollStreet by her. The face looks very grainy in close up but I have sanded him quiet a bit and still it looks like this. I am finding it hard to sand the face as I don't want to loose the details and the face is so small. He is only about 7 1/2 inches tall. I guess he needs to be just painted now.

If only I could do half of what this little guy is doing I would be that much more toned and fitter lol! So here is his body almost complete. I know I have to shape him a bit more but he is coming along fairly well considering I have almost no experience in sculpting with paperclay.

Dragging my muse

Today I dragged my muse screaming and kicking and started a sculpt. I have started it with paperclay and I really found it difficult to sculpt. Since it is my first full body sculpt I should really have done it with polymer clay which might have been easier to handle but what all the screaming and kicking going on I decided I had better start sculpting soon or my muse will escape yet again. So here is the begining of my sculpt. I think I will end up sand papering it a lot or it will just crack up, have to wait and see what happens. But I am determined that I will do this small figure somehow.

Early in the morning last week I caught this glorious sight of the sky.
and before I could adjust the camera a bit it turned like this!

A few pictures

I am back and slowly getting back into the groove. Seems like as though I have been away for ages. So much to catch up with so I will visit your blogs slowly. In the meantime just thought I would share with you some pictures that I took. This one below I took while sitting in a traffic jam. For once I was happy to be stuck in the traffic as I got to see the sky transform beautifully while the sun set.
A gecko sunning himself. What perfect camouflage. These geckos often change their colours to their surroundings to ward off danger. He soon disappeared before I could take a good shot of him when he heard me clicking away.
Pretty pink lilies.
Perfect for a brides bouquet
