DO YOU REMEMBER ALVIN?

Hi Everyone! 

I am not sure how to show a second on second with out rewriting and updating it.
So this is Alvin. I created him in Oct. 19, 2011.  So he works for
Elizabeth's Second on second.
I don't think I have showed Alvin on Paint Party Friday before so I will like up with Eva and Kristen with this as well.


He started like this a clean, painted, and carved gourd top.

 He got eyes

 and then a clay face. I forgot how much I liked this face.

 However, before he was quite dry I picked him up and he flew out of my hands. 
Alvin went to pieces.
So he has been sitting on my work shelf all this time waiting for a new face. He got one yesterday. I used a different type of clay so even if I drop him again he won't crack up. LOL


Alvin in his new face. He has ears and a hat. He is not exactly like his old self but when I get done with him he will be a happy guy.

I really liked the first face better especially the eyes.

  1. What a great idea, putting clay on Alvin. What kind of clay did you use?? I have some gourds outside that I've been wanting to do something with and you've give me ideas.:) Let me know please. It's a great job and I can hardly wait to see him complete. Nice job.

  2. The "new" Alvin looks very contrite for having jumped out of your hands! I think he learned his lesson--he looks great!

  4. Ohhhh! Poor Alvin, he cracked me up! But yay to Alvin! I cannot decide which of his faces I like better, they´re both wonderful!
    I only once made a boot. Only one. Have a nice weekend and probably not try if Alvin makes it through another incident ;-)

  5. I'd never heard of Alvin before, but it's too bad he flew out of your hands. However, you have fixed him well. I look forward to seeing how you progress with him, and I am amazed you created him out of a gourde. That is unreal! Hope your Friday is the best day of the week so far.

  9. When I read your post title and saw the gourd with holes, I thought you were heading for Alvin, the Chipmunk! But I see this is your own personal Alvin. He does look a bit different, it’s probably because he’s older. He’s not as smooth-faced. Makes sense! I love this piece, especially the clueless expression!

  15. So creative of you. To start with a gourd and then add clay, I don't think I would have ever thought of doing that. Your face has wonderful character. I know someone who looks a bit like him.
