"Disc Jacky" with Paint

"Disc Jacky," is painted now and is the first of 8 hanging figures I have planned with disk bodies, wire arms and legs with paperclay heads, hands and boots. He has a big toothy grin (minus a lower tooth), lovely hazel eyes, a bat bow tie, skull belt buckle and unruly feather hair. He is made of paperclay, paper mache, wire and feathers and is painted with acrylic paints. He is 13" tall, not measuring his feather top so he is too big to be considered an ornament unless you have a full size tree to hang him from.

A face a mother could love...and maybe you too!!

He has sculpted hands and a sculpted bow tie.

"Disc Jacky" hangs from a cord with a black wire loop at the end. The arms and legs move slightly and the wire can be bent if you want to reposition the legs, but this is a sculpture and not meant to be a toy so you would need to remember to handle him with care.
I'm excited to get started on the next disk figure now that I have this one done. Too many ideas, so little time--HA!!
Have a great Friday and happy creating!!
