Inspiration for my Faces

Polymer Clay Book of Month - April - Fairies, Gnomes, & Trolls by Maureen CarlsonDawn SchillerFor many of you who have been around the polymer clay world for awhile, you will likely see the influence of both Dawn Schiller and Maureen Carlson in my faces. I have mentioned and reviewed both of their books here on the site: “Faemaker: Making Fantasy Characters in Polymer Clay” by Dawn Schiller [read the Top 5 Polymer Clay Books Post here] and “Fairies Gnomes and Trolls” by Maureen Carlson was our book of the month for April.

2016 Polymer Clay Challenge, Week 20 Polymer Clay Face Sculptures by KatersAcres

Polymer Clay Faces | #2016PCChallenge

REGROUPING: Sometimes it’s hard to face the truth … I’ve known the truth for about 2 months now … but facing that truth has been a different story. So what “truth” am I talking about?
