Wild Wicked Wednesday

Hi Everyone!
It has been and still is today wild and wicked out. It has been storming with high winds, rain, floods, and high tides. We are safe where we are but even 
stepping out the door is pretty wicked.
If you could see my art room you would think that is wild and wicked too. Every table top has several leather and clay projects drying. Plus, I have several paintings gong as well. NO my art room is NOT that big. LOL 
Here is one of the paintings.
For some reason I am working with gold in several projects.
So what else is going on in my art world.

 Doll armatures. Get basic shape     

 Cotton ball to shape the head. You can use a Styrofoam ball too.

 Wrap in foil.

 Add cotton to make a booty then wrap in masking tape.

 A little more shaping and then I will add clay.

 For different doll projects, Getting the faces set. Barbara asked how I get my faces to look so real. First I take clay  and make the face. A very tedious job for me. Then I make a mold that can be reused many times. 

Today I have a friend coming over. She needs help with a beading project.
Think I should make a spice coffee cake for her.
Off to the kitchen. 
Have a great day!
If you don't think the delta variant or covid 19 can hurt you, 
YOU ARE WRONG! Protect yourself and others. 
Get Vaccinated and Wear a MASK!

Love your painting Nicole.

I have found making realistic clay faces tedious as well. Im eager to see the doll finished. Your method of wire armature, foil andmasking tape is what Ive done. Then I most often added papier mache.I must try clay! I see a cityscape reflected in water. Its beautiful!

I had NO idea you made your own face molds, Nicole. That is MOST IMPRESSIVE. Hope your weather improves, because it's starting to show up here, too.

I am married to a quilter so I have some appreciation of many projects on the go at the same time.

My art room probably looks like yours, at least when it comes to things on every table. Loving that painting, the gold draws your eye in. And nice sculpture too.Its great to see how you made it. Happy Thursday! Hope all is well with you Nicole.
