Polymer clay - Super Sculpey.
Oh, wow! Thank you so, so much! :)
I totally dig this one! Looks great!!
I don't have a reply arrow on your last comment so I will comment under this one.
You make it sound so simple. It's not though.
It gets easier when you have found right tools to express yourself.
That definitely isn't something you are born with. At least not in my case. :D I had some digging to do! :)
It's your journey to learn to understand who you are and decide what to do with who you are - give your best to grow and develop or leave it as it is because look it's hard.
I spent hours on Graham (tortoise) till I was satisfied with the result.
Greta (elephant) is version 2.0 and still had trunk removed and redone and had like four different sets of ears.
I have high expectations of myself. I am a visual person + some degree of OCD. :D
Thank you once again for kind words about my work! :)
I am always amazed. Some people are born with great artistic ability. Others have to work hard just to be mediocre. The really great ones are born to it and study hard at it. These are all very nice.
It is because I burned his feet by accident while baking.
P.S. Thank you so, so much! This is my very, very first sculpt I did.
I just want to help him cross the road. I hope he makes it quickly safe. So why did the black footed tortoise cross the road? In my minds eye I can see him teetering gingerly from foot to foot trying to keep his balance as he zigzags his way across. Great sculpt with lots of feeling.
