Yes, it has been a while since I last posted. I guess you could say, it's been a DEVIL of a time trying to find time for recreation. However, the last couple of days I spent some time with the kids doing the "Sculpey" clay and I just like doing little busts. Once I get done with them I always add a couple of horns (to my wife's dismay).
I didn't like this one as much because I used the white "Sculpey" instead of the flesh colored, which made it very opaque and it didn't take watercolor at all. So, I had to use acrylic to color it. Even after painting it, it just wasn't working for me. The saving grace was to put a high gloss finish on it. That way it almost looked glass-like and then the paint that I used seemed to work a little better. I'll be using the flesh colored clay for the next project.
