Now, for some art updates. I've been dividing my time between making new art pieces for the Sac Horror Art Event and writing for a new project. Oh, and getting ready for the ghost hunt this weekend! Which, BTW, I've decided will be on Twitter & Facebook (during the event) since I know some of you aren't on Twitter, so make sure to add me on FB if you haven't already and you want to see how all of this goes down! Of course i'll be posting about it on Monday too.
You might remember the before pictures from this post, Achy Breaky Art, and how I was experimenting with paper clay for the first time. So, I managed to get further along (although not quite done) on the art doll I was working on.
|I'm working on her body now. I also have a super cool |
dress for her. I'm thinking she'll be a "corpse bride."
I started a few smaller doll heads, and this below is one of them. I will be making her body soon, too. I haven't yet decided if she will be a sitting doll, or a hanging one.
|She will be called "The Black Widow." I will be making|
a spider for her hair, and her dress will be made
out of cobwebs.
This is The Crazy Mermaid, one of the finished ones that was shown as "before" in the other post.
And lastly, I tried something completely different and I love the end result. I used a wood plaque, painted it black with some red splatter, and made Zombie Girl out of paper clay to give it that 3D effect when hanging on a wall.
|She isn't hanging up yet, but I took a pic of the side view so tha you|
could see how she "pops" right off the wood. I used wool yarn for
hair and it's hard to see from these pics, but she's wearing the
cutest zombie boots ever!
