My 2016 polymer clay challenge is to create (at least) one polymer clay fantasy creature, one polymer clay face sculpture (fantasy style) a month and one marionette a month. Each participant in the 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge is encouraged to make something they want and decide on their own theme for the year.
Why polymer clay faces? That’s a really good question. Every year I try to conquer something that I want to get better at and excel in. In 2014 I made it my personal goal to not be afraid of caning anymore! I joined the 52 weeks of canes group and began my journey. While I’m definitely not a caner, I am no longer afraid to try or to attempt making my own.
I am intrigued by faces, especially fantasy faces like Dawn Schiller and Maureen Carlson. I’ve always wanted to excel at making my own, but I’ve never put in the time. Now that I’ve committed myself to that this year, I can work at trying to increase and grow this skill. Due to time constraints I only challenged myself to make ONE per month, this month I did three different ones.
I love fantasy creatures (If you’ve been around KatersAcres for awhile, you are likely not surprised by this in the least)! This Ogre as of now is still unnamed, but that doesn’t mean he’s unloved! In fact, he’s my favorite thus far!
Elmer is a laughable fellow who was an attempt at a different style of nose. While I this he’s okay, he’s definitely not a favorite. But Elmer is a prime example of WHY I decided to sculpt faces…so I could get better at them and lose my fear that they were “so difficult” I couldn’t possibly do it.
This month I created a total of 4 dragons and 3 faces. All in all, not too shabby! Follow my progress here.
