glitter and flocking...


let's see.....there are a few new ladies hanging around the studio today...

meet "ellie and nellie"....


they enjoyed playing together so much, they decided to make it permanent.


they are for a holiday show,so i couldn't help but add a bit of german glass glitter to their party hats.


and the window into their souls shows flying circus banners and red balloons floating away into the clouds. all the makings of a fantastic day!!

this is an as yet untitled piece....


she is a bit simpler than some of the other pieces i've been doing, but i am quite fond of her.


her antlers are my favorite part. they are painted black with a champagne metallic paint overlay. 

this piece is entitled "self portrait with bunny ears"....


she is also for an upcoming holiday show.


her ears are flocked white and her buttons have a bit of clear german glass glitter on them.
at this time of year, it's kind of hard for me to not glitter anything that will stand still!!

and an update on the Magic Sculpt i ordered...i tried it out last night and let's just call it as the disaster it was!! i have no idea how anyone works with that stuff (not to mention it's expensive as hell!!)
it normally takes me about 20 minutes to sculpt one of my doll heads. it took me 20 minutes just to get the Magic Sculpt to look like the guy from SAW
disaster!!!
so, i'll take the longer drying time and having to fill in cracks over that any day, thank you very much!! 

and that's all that's going on over here right now. 
just trying to get some pieces ready for the holidays and juggle the two part time jobs i've had to pick up to supplement ye olde income....

have a great week!!!
until next time,

♥amber♥
