Mini Dracula Bust - Work in Progress

. Sunday, September 12, 2010

Here's a pic of my Dracula head so far. I keep changing him up to see what different things would look like, but I think I'm ready to finish sculpting, clean him up and get this handsome fella in the oven.

I got my Man Eating Plant Stake finished up and listed in my Etsy shop. There was a bit of delay caused by Hermine coming through with tons of rain. I needed some some better weather to finish up and get pictures and it was a beautiful day today.

In the meantime I started working on a miniature bust of Dracula. Didn't have a chance to get pictures of my work in progress today, but hope to get some tomorrow.

Man Eating Plants

. Tuesday, September 7, 2010

I took a couple pictures of my progress with the Man Eating Plant Stake. All I have left to go, is finishing up the colors and texture on the stake itself and blending into the back of the "flower". Then he will be ready to turn what is now a sweet, docile houseplant into carnivorous beasty.

Kitchen Witch

. Wednesday, September 1, 2010

On the dolly front, I got my kitchen witch finished up and listed in my Etsy shop. She's 1:12th scale, a wee pinch taller than I had planned since she is 6 inches tall. So she's a tall witch, good for her. :-)

I've been in the mood lately to do more carnivorous plants. It's a weird mood, but one I get once in a while. I'm fascinated by them. Kind of funny, I guess, since I'm a vegetarian. I'm currently working on a plant stake that can turn a regular house plant into a man eating monster! I think I will make another after this one that is small for an African violet. A vicious African Violet is something I can't go through life without seeing.

Other than that.... I'm on my last year of homeschooling as my daughter is a senior this year. It's been so much a part of my life it's going to be weird when I'm done. Been crazy hot here in Texas, but much better than last year so I'll take it.

And lastly, but certainly not leastly, my Foster dog Trump has had all three of his heartworm treatments and came through it very well, he goes in a couple weeks to have a blood test to make sure the treatment got them all, then it's time for that sweet fellow to find the family of his dreams.
