Since I'm unable to post pics right now, I scanned some of the work I've been doing.
Top of the polymer clay covered Altoid tin (done with translucent chrysanthamum cane).
The bottom of the tin, but you can only see it's feet... And some hearts made from the cane scraps.
A few of the switchplates I've been covering.
Also, I wanted to give my old Shy Troll a place in my blog, so here he is, with his story:
Shy Troll was born on the longest day, in the Land of Faraway,
During the Year of the 5th Turning.
He has traveled widely through the darkest waterways of the world.
Today, Shy Troll resides beneath Black Bridge, beside
The currents of The Sarasvati River.
Gazing beyond the night,
Shy Troll rests against the rocks, until he continues on his walk.
12" tall. He is sculpted from the finest polymer clays. The body armature is constructed of wire, wood, and polyester cotton batting. A small gourd was used for his head armature. The eyes are hand painted polymer clay.
He wears a buffalo hide cape, and has buffalo hair, which was applied by hand. His clothes are beige chamois and brown cowhide leather.
