In the Clay

I have been working in the paper mache clay for the last several days and decided to show you my progress. Pumpkin heads, skelly heads, cats, a new orb started and bits and pieces of things in various stages waiting for a set of hands to finish them. Some things are new to the studio like my first true candy container, which I am anxious to have dry so I can add the paint. Will it be the only one?... I don't know yet as many hours have already been put into the design so we will have to see if it is something to be repeated or not. Decisions, decisions!!
It might be awhile before I post any of these figures completed as we have been having heavy rain for 4 to 5 days, which has our humidity currently at 83% so it might take some time to dry these out! Hmmmm...I'm thinking they may go downstairs to visit my dehumidifier for a few days.

Back to the clay for me!

Your work continues to impress :) I was sorry that I didn't see any of it on the STJ website. I hope that things are going well :)

Oh Leanne, I left STJ this past month to reduce some of the pressure of producing each month. I've slowed down terribly the last few months. You'll still see me out and about! Promise!!
