Grimmy, finished … but badly.

December 18th, 2013 · No Comments

I really wish I hadn’t painted him. And then glazed him. I’m going to stop doing that … I hate the way they end up looking. The clean, matte finish of baked sculpey is so much more appealing.

The reason I painted him gray in the first place was because I have a can of textured spray paint that is supposed to make things look like stone, but there was too much texture, and after applying it there was a tremendous loss of detail. So, I cleaned it all off and in a fit of “eh, screw it” I glazed him. I regret not leaving well enough alone and leaving him as he was when he came out of the oven.

Oh well.

More Grimmy Bignose

I’ve found a small, wooden container among all the random bits of stuff in the closet in my studio and have mounted Grimmy’s head to the lid.

Grimmy Bignose

December 15th, 2013 · No Comments

I’ve been playing around with polymer clay again, super sculpey to be specific, this time making a gargoyle/goblin/thing. First, the original sketch:

Now, with a bit of progress:

And a little more …

And where he is as of now, recently given the designation “Grimmy Bignose” by my kids.
