Linda is cunning. she works her magic on you and you don't even know it is happening!! All was well after Idelwill, for a few days. Linda encouraged me to order a few boxes of sculpy to practice with...this is where she knew she had me! Why could I not see it?
A few days later my box arrived. I can tell u exactly when it arrived, It came to my door Thursday around 2 PM. My mother heard about this and arrived promptly at my door with other supplies/toaster oven. (Linda must have called her!) Boy that Linda is sneaky! After dinner, I opened a new box and started to play. I have not been able to put it down! Its like a drug. I have watched the sun come up (and go down) over the last 3 days; I am silly from sleep deprivation, and it just makes me want to do more sculpting! Linda did such an amazing job teaching form and technique, I have been able to replicate it at home. I just took the last piece out of the over and it is cooling. If I I go to bed right now, I could sleep 2 hours, get up and start working on it again!
So Linda, your seedy little plan has worked, I'm totally hooked on sculpting forms. So I will task you with coming up with a way of dealing with all the sculpts I will soon have!
Here are a few samples:
Don't worry about his infected ear. I'm a nurse,he/she IS ALREADY ON an ANTIBIOTIC. In my haste to get them out of the oven,I broke THEM OFF. I attempted to fix with apoxie cast. Looks gross but I think it will work
THIS GUY IS A TRAGEDY, I PAINTED HIM WHITE spray paint TO get a good canvas TO WORK FROM... IT WAS A BIG MISTAKE. Still wet and tacky after 2 days. Looks like S#^T also, MORAL: don't use spray paint on raw sculpy!
The Following Pictures are for ADULTS ONLY
Here sits the biggest tragedy of all. This is what happens around 2am after 3 days of no sleep and huffing Sculpy!
You have been warned
I like the sculpt. I just lost my mind. I watched 10 painting videos (By pros) and thought it looked so easy. I did not however follow there professional advice. I did this with dull broken colored pencils. They may have mentioned the importance of having a razor sharp point, but that seemed extraneous information at the time.
So there you go.
Lindas Master plan to have me live alone in a horded house with nothing but bad sculpts is well on its way!!!
I love you Linda, What a gift you have given me. I can use this in my jewelry, mixed media/recycling And ASSEMBLAGE SO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY EMPTY SCULPTY BOX
I hope all the girls are having as much fun sculpting as I am. Set up a yahoo group so we can swap tricks and technique.
