Project Runway

30 01 2015

Been really into Project Runway: All Stars lately. Dmitry and Sanji are my favorites. 🙂 Sanji has this awesome sense of style, and I love how Dmitry’s always so deadpan. Not sure I like Michelle (think that’s her name…with the Mohawk thing), but I’m fascinated by her Mohawk thing. I didn’t quite mean to make Isaac Mizrahi look that angry. :/ Some quick sketches during the episodes. A new eppie is on Right! Now!

More tablet practice… you can tell I totally gave up by the time I got to the legs. 😛

Project: Mouse

20 01 2015

I haven’t abandoned this blog! It’s just life getting in the way as usual. In a 2 week time span, I’ve traveled to a tropical vacation spot and will travel to a frozen cold business city. Then there was the biopsy business which was totally not cool except for the fact that I’m now technically part titanium. And I’m enough of a nerd to be excited about that.

Anyway, I’ve been making time for little craft projects. Last summer, I fell in love with this line of vegetable/animal figurines called Homegrown. OMG. They are the cutest! I can’t decide which of them to buy yet, so in the meantime I decided to try making the rutabaga mouse out of old polymer clay.


You’re probably supposed to use foil or an armature for the body, but I thought I’d try to get away with making it smaller without that stuff.


Rough. Man, is it hard to get things smooth! By the time I baked it, it looked pretty okay. Then I knocked its ear off. And then its arm fell off. 😦


However! I epoxy-ed it all back together, and the acrylics worked brilliantly. You can see the picture of the Enesco/Homegrown version behind it. It’s much better than mine, but I’m still pretty proud of it. Oh, and those are a couple of random, in-process, clay swans on the painting foil.



The cooking time confuses me, because the clay package said 15 minutes for every 1/4 inch, but the mouse’s body was so much thicker than the rest. I ended up burning the bottom of him, but! paint fixes all.

One Last Birb

I’m spending too much time on tumblr, as I’ve started referring to cute birds as birbs. In honor of the last day of 2014, here is a holiday birb. Happy New Year, everyone!
