How were your celebrations? I wish all the very best for you in this new year, remember it is never too late to start anew all it takes is the courage and work!__________________________________________________________
I wanted to share my new years project with you a little. This project came close to convincing me to see how fast and hard I could throw it at the wall..
I did not calculate the arid climate in my house, as it is winter and dry.. when thinking on the paperclay drying.
So it has ended up with a million cracks. My concept for this house was a very clean smooth looking house.. but after being a big ole baby about it.. and taking a breath...maybe a couple of glasses of wine... I figured I can make this work and just have a cottage look to it and go with the cracking flow ;)
It is a work in progress but I thought I would share some sculpting shots.
This project started out as a thought of turning one of the Half scale houses I purchased from my Greenleaf win into a elven styled house. After using my paper patterns I realized that it would be too much patching work and about 80% would be remade anyways.
So I decided on gator board. While using the Arthur as a size guide.
This uses homemade paper clay.. but the version for this is a bit different. Paper mache' Clay. I will get into it a bit later.
I decided on making a dragon scale patterned roof for this, as this look is from a lot of my geek...er RPG games and it fit the slope and style of the roof nicely.
A lot more work to be done! I want to encourage you folks to try some toilet paper clay room boxes or roofs for 2014, lets learn together!
What are you working on for this new year??
