recently finished old cup

while still recovering form a bad could witch ended up with a nice pneumonia i "finally"
managed to finish and old wip(well still got to varnish it,but i already call it finished...i can't wait).

pour thing had its leg broken and it had a few more weak points but i did not rushed
and resolved them slowly as time and mood let me...

i don't have "how to build "pictures but i tell you i made it over the same type of milk jug i use for this kind of cups (called "MILLI"milk) using both methods -strips and pulp-and i love that shape that can easily become something else for ex.a princess dress if turned upside down lol...

when i reached the painting part i thought i may use one of my pattern sketches over it (see the blue paint version) but it was not only v difficult but also not v effective so i let it go and made something" lighter" using paper coils (not a bit of clay i swear! that medium is making me with the eye from a long time but i'm a stubborn head and have this silly ambition of "pure"paper...well at least regarding this cup lol).
i made the coils with the same method i wrote about a few posts ago..

this is the final product,i don't know what's coming
next i could make a nice mosaic of unfinished stuffs waiting in different places...

plasticine and mold

i made the plasticine faces about a month ago as i could not focus on anything larger or time consuming but some little oil clay sculptings.it was fun making them and i just loved the way they fitted the situations when everything were (and it is) much important than relaxing through creation.
oil clay is generous.not only with kids ...i could always restart,drop it,restart and so on.the sharp silicon ended sculpt tool i bought half year ago for making paint dots (hehe) were exactly what i needed though i had no idea at the time that actually that is a wide used tool for sculpting in any kind of clays.

the brown face is already smashed or should i say generously turned out but the rest is still what they were a month ago...i mean nothing but faced bits of clay.

as you can see the following two pieces were luckily casted i just have to dare to compact a little paper pulp into ....or better to paste some strips as the mold came out a little bit deep.i would like to keep the mold if possible.
the basic idea would be making a few finger puppets and/or frig magnets so i'm really curious how they'll turn out.it must be a way out isn't it?

gun matter

just a short post of last days acquisition.a very much expected tool since a red about it's usefulness long time enough to think this could resolve the gluing problems i met along the way.my husband helped me choosing the best type regarding his experiences and i must say i'm way too happy my fingers won't stick any more to my unfinished wips.you know...

so here is the first thing i glued with it...a paper clay ornament to my next paper bracelet.

coming next my very OLD birdies leg.....

that sad i wish every mother a happy Mother's Day!!!
