What once was clear now is not

Standard

Was going to call this piece “Bandstand and bodies” but it made me think of the film The Gazebo and thought I’d better not.  No bodies hidden under this one.

It was clear, really

A tale of biggish pictures and little work

Am thinking on the lines of painting the bandstand a pale sky blue with green here and there.  Not fixed on it but will try out a patch or two.

Not ‘cooked’ till at least Sunday

The clay heads won’t be sand-able till after the weekend so have prepped five neck/shoulder shapes and they’ll be ready for sanding by Wednesday.

Then I can use pipe-cleaners, wadding and fabric to build up the arms, legs and bodies.  I’m talking here as though I firmly know what I’m doing which is not so.  But am hopeful that I might get one or two figures out of this first collection.  Starting out on a new project I’d forgotten just how long it takes to get to the interesting bits 😉

Meanwhile there are hands to make

Fish fingers anyone? First run at a pair of hands that have to hold a triangle and stick. Must try harder eh?

It had become dusty and scratty and I’ve topped it up with a bit of this and that
