I went out today to mail a box for drazzi
(it's gone first class, you should have him really soon) and it was t-shirt weather. As in I actually wore a t-shirt. And it was warm. I guess that about wraps it up for winter.
Here's some WIP shots from another doll:
The head and feet are Sculpey Living Doll, which I'm testing out with this guy. I'm really impressed by it. I'd been using Sculpey Firm before which... does not really live up to its name when baked. It's soft and easy to scratch. Living Doll bakes at a higher temperature and feels a lot more durable. I still have plenty of Firm left but I think I will use it up on a more standard sculpture or two rather than another doll.
Also this guy is what I made from the plastic armature
I brought a couple of months ago. You can see how flexible it is in the second shot. He can stand on his back legs too, and he's so expressive and mobile, and I don't have to worry about metal fatigue breaking him. It's pricier than wire, but worth the difference.
He's not entirely done, he lacks a second wing in that photo and I need to get some glue to finish him off. But he's close. I wish he fit in the lightbox, though.
ANYWAY. If you want him, I can hold onto him once he's done. Or if you want something of you own, I can swing that for you. They start at about £100. I take payment in installments if it's easier for you. Hint hint.
