Experiment with Creative Paperclay
“A loverley bunch of …” bananas
These are nowhere as fragile as I’d expected. They’re very rough and over-large, but I’m determined to try to make some use of them. Who knows, I may never manage again to make anything vaguely like out of the clays.
So, as soon as one of the heads I’m working on was up and almost running, I gave them to him to see what would happen.
They do look at least a 1/4 size too big for him, but I think, if the arm part were cut down in length I still may well give the hands to him. As soon as I stuck the wispy beard and whiskers on I realised he should have been and Edwardian, but hey ho, Elizabethan/Jacobean he’s going to have to be.
The shoulders and general ‘body’ construction I’ll write about another day. I’ve still got another face to paint and must try making a better set of hands tomorrow.
Now where have I put the instructions for feet?
