Little Tree Fairy is a mixed media piece that incorporates paper mache, polymer clay and cloth. The finished piece is 13" tall, and the little fairy is 5". I must say I have really been having fun with paper mache lately! this piece is a prototype for an online class I am writing. Will keep you posted on the progress of the class.

The 10" tree is created from paper mache and clay. I added a base made from paper mache and other materials and a tiny cloth  fairy to sit in the fork of the tree.

Hemogoblin the Bone Collector

I love Halloween! Every year this allows me the opportunity to create something really dark and edgy, and even ugly. Hemogoblin is off the charts for ugly! It's a nice diversion from pretty ladies and cute faiies.
I started with a gourd which I left the natural mottled color. Then I sculpted his face from polymer clay. The goblin limbs are from cloth, and his teeth are actually from a coyote jaw.
