I love the process...
A Styrofoam ball, some masking tape, a wood dowel, linen fabric,
rubber stamps, black jasper beads, and paper clay!
My little other-worldly "alien" begins to take on a personality of his own.
(love that smirk!)
A paper clay beard was a late add-on, after base-coating.
A little color and some dry-brushing...
Keep the layering coming... tone it down.
And throw in his Army issued wool blanket hooded coat...
His little lantern was made using a “candle” or “smoke graining” technique,
which was popular between 1790 and 1890.
It has both the look and feel of aged metal...
using nothing more than a brown grocery bag and white glue!
Little red boots in a pile of shimmering German glass glitter snow...
What can I say?
Rusty bells and a paper clay heart... wool mittens too!
He stands 17 inches high... from the top of his rusty star hood
to the checkerboard, square-head nail and wire base.
Thank you for stopping by... Daryle
