This years Halloween Treat to myself was a Skeletal Plastic Mouse from World Market. I couldn't resist; re, it was Oh-So-Cool, whimsically cute, & inexpensive enough not to cause guilt tripping.
It was only when I got it home that the ears & nose registered as being singularly unskeleton like. SO I decided to Zombie it up with some patches of rotting flesh & hair. Here is the results:
This is The Mouse at an early stage of development with Leo Sizechek for an idea of just how big the Little Fellow is:
There you have it...so to speak.
I have been planning a few ore photo stages. The Trio of Trees will be movable props, & character actors in the cast.
They will eventually appear in somewhat fancier surroundings, but for their first presentation, they are seen here on my work table:
The Philosopher or Idiot...take your pick:
The Conversation, Monk & Tree:
AND the Group Portrait:
...if you go out in the Woods today, you're in for a big surprise.
SO, SisterMaryNapalm came across some Beastes to stick into flower pots:
AND thought my Mushrooms would be just the thing to enliven his Mom's flower pots.
Here's where they stood as of Tuesday:
He wanted them to be somewhere between 10" to a foot. The BBQ skewers were just the thing:
The stems & eyes were done by Tuesday evening:
Losing a day to World Series Game 7, the green stuffing started earlier today:
More later...later being a nebulous term.
.."whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouse, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos gets such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time"...to make some more Mushrooms....Ismail & I approach the problem differently
A few days ago, the symptoms began to appear. Now I that the end in is in sight, I'll post what I have been up to.
These Fellow already had their blanks made. SO it was just a matter of adding beads & green stuffing :
...that wasn't enough to snap the black mood; three larger ones were needed. First the Blanks:
...then the eyes (beads), & arms...somewhat more eye & arms then usual:
...the marvels of Mushroom dentistry:
...Stage I Green Stuffing:
...with Leo "Legs-don't-fail-me-now" Sizechek for a size check:
...AND Stage II Green Stuffing, capping of the sculpts:
...once I figure how they will be used, they will be painted...stay tuned.
