Picture Frame

Picture Frame

This is the latest thing I've created. My grandma was visiting so I made a small picture frame magnet for her. I doubt she'll find a picture small enough to put in it, but that's not the point. 

I used black clay for the base, a cookie cutter and gold powder for the hummingbird, and a texture sheet/more gold powder for the bottom left corner. Top left: glitter and white sand, gold paint pen. I painted the girl myself, used gold powder for her hair, and embellished it with micro marbles in gold, silver, and white.
That's really all there is to say on the matter.
Also, I have more stuff to post, but I'll save that for another time.

New Sculpture

 Here are pictures of my new sculpture, the one mentioned in the last post. She is ceramic clay (air-dry), not polymer clay.
Also based loosely off of Belle from Beauty and the Beast; mostly her hair. I finally painted her. To see all of these pictures in a nice little video, click here.

I haven't done anything sitewise in a really, really long time. Wondering why? Well, I'll tell you anyhow. I am quite possibly one of the laziest people when it comes to advertising and keeping up with my own social media. Sure, I look at other people's stuff. On a daily basis. More than I actually create, and therein lies the problem.
It is summer, so school is not an excuse. But may I also say that I have literally tons of hobbies? I am a writer, a reader, a gamer, a knitter, a sculptor, a dancer, a pianist, a music enthusiast, and various other things. It is very hard to stick with just one activity for a long period of time. I go through phases. This week, it'll be sculpting. Next week, reading. The next, video games. So naturally I am very good at starting things, and not as good at finishing them.
I doubt if anyone would remember (I'm positive that of all my blog viewers, none are regular), but a long time ago I started a sculpture of Absolem from Alice in Wonderland, my favorite series of all time. This was to be my first major project, larger-scale than all the others. I have yet to finish it. In fact, it may not even be further than the last post I made on it. Of course, I intend to get back to it. I always intend to. But perhaps I may be serious this time?
I got sidetracked for a long time working on another large-scale sculpture, a bust of a woman based off of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I am pleased to say that I have completed the sculpting part of this project. It is quite larger than anything I have ever done, nearly life-size, in fact. If you look at the other things I have completed, it is quite easy to imagine the quality of this work. I am a miniaturist. I deal in small things, almost never lifelike, except food perhaps. So I am not too proud of this bust. Only in the fact that I actually finished sculpting it, mayhaps. But I'm not done yet. I decided I need to be proud enough of this project to post it here on my blog and website. And as I find it very plain myself, I intend to paint it and see if I can make it better. This will be my next project.
Yes, I have still been sculpting miniatures, but mostly for myself, not intended to be sold commercially or anything of that sort. And there are very few anyhow. I will be working more as I have the money to buy the materials I need. I just recently got a job, so that should take care of that.
Now, as to videos. I realize I haven't posted any in forever, and the ones I did were very amateur. I was in fact in the middle of another tutorial a very long time ago when my computer shut down and I lost all progress. This was extremely frustrating, to the point of me giving up entirely and not doing videos ever again. I realize that this was silly, as videos are a great advertising opportunity. I do not think tutorials are my thing, really, so I will probably just be doing updates. Most likely in picture slideshow form. I do not like speaking to a camera, especially one with a quality as crappy as mine. A new camera is definitely on my wish list.

Well, now you are completely up to date on my meager activity lately and the reasons why. So be sated until I can stick with this project long enough to finish it. Thanks for your time.
