Work in Progress:Progress

Today, I found some bunny head references that were right for what I needed.

So one thing led to another and I now have my  base cloth head!
The sewn head will not be seen, as it will be under the sculpted clay.
I soft sculpted the eye sockets and ironed the ears.
Everything is now covered in the first layer of paper clay.

I know this gives the illusion that I know what I'm doing
but I wasn't sure if the clay would stick to the or just crumble and flake off.

What I did learn is that I am never making a stuffed cloth head for one of these again
Next time I am buying a commercially made, preformed, off-the-shelf
polystyrene egg, because there will be less crying 
and fewer salty oaths.

For more, look here.


  1. I'm fighting with a cloth head right now...much swearing has ensued:)

    1. I feel your pain, sister. *Offers a nice cup of tea*


Thank you all for the wonderful and supportive things you say! I'm thrilled to read them and I reply to each one.
