New OOAK sculptures now available!

Just in time for Christmas, I have listed several new pieces on Ebay AND on my website! I listed at rock bottom prices on Ebay so I hope you will place a bid if you like them! As you can see, I have sculpted more than one Snow Girl. I started doing these several years ago, but each one has her own face because I do not use molds.
The nativities are another of my original designs. I have created several of these, also, but no two are alike. I stain them heavily to give them a very aged, almost relic look.
The pink tea cup baby is one of my sweetest. She comes in an Englis tea cup that is so girly, just like she is. Her antique lace hat gives her a Victorian look.
I know times are hard right now, so I started as low as I could go just to recover some of my supply expenses.
Thanks for your support! I will write more soon!

hand tutorial part 2

If I were going to actually use this hand for a sculpt, I would do more finishing, but these photos will give you the basic idea.

Please let me know if they help you create realistic hands. I appreciate your imput.

hand tutorial part 1

Here is part one of my hand tutorial that I keep promising you. I am sorry about the debris in the clay. I usually sculpt much cleaner than this, but I had used my desk for soldering and didn't get it cleaned well enough. I wanted to get this done for you, however, so please overlook the specks of dust.

I have struggled with hands ever since I started sculpting and could not make a decent hand with round fingers until I came up with this method. If anyone else is using this method, I have not seen their version. I tried the usual technique where you cut in the fingers, but they always ended up flat! I work so tiny that it was impossible to roll them into round shapes after cutting.

I will post part 2 later today.

hand tutorial postponed

I'm so sorry I didn't get the hand tutorial posted this weekend. To be honest, I did not feel very well today. When I don't sculpt or solder, you know I am having a bad day. I will try to post it this week if all goes well.

Coming soon! Hand tutorial

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. I have been working on jewelry and sculpts for our neighborhood boutique as well as keeping up with my soldered accessories for "Flatter Me....Again," a local clothing store.

As a gift to you, I am going to share my way of sculpting hands. I will be photographing the steps and posting them to my blog soon, hopefully by the end of this weekend, so please watch. This method has worked best for me. I have not seen anyone else use this technique, or, if they do, I am not aware.

Keep watch!
