Another month another batch of Mushrooms & Associates. This month is a bit lighter than last. I started it toward the end of last month's Gang...which is still waiting on some Show Off photos.
I am also hoping to squeeze in some Pumpkinheads & other Halloween strangeness elsewhere. More of that later. For now, The Mushrooms:
With the ever popular Leo Sizechek for comparison:
I got the idea to do a Mushroom/Goblin Wizard from this illustration:
Mine is a bit seedier:
A Goblin Faerie sidekick seemed appropriate. Appropriate or not I wanted to try out some paper punch butterfly wings with a foam coating inner layer:
AND base coated & ready for color:
A few days ago I started a new type of Mushroom based on some Pinterest polymer clay pieces like this one:
This one & his kin are quite a bit larger than the ones I make, but the detail is something to aspire to.
Here is a step by step of my Mushroom in progress up to yesterday. This is the plumber's epoxy dolly:
The Kneadotite (green stuff):
I use the left over green stuff to make smaller versions of the Big Mushroom...you probably already notice that:
There will be more of this type in varying sizes AND their bases coming along soon...or eventually.
I have been wandering through the wonderfully inspiring photos on Pinterest. The Mushroom pictured there have created a need to make some new Faerie Folk Mushrooms of my own.
I put up pic on my Last Hurrah Thread, but since this may be a protracted effort, I thought I would post here as well. These are a few of the ones I am doing versions of:
The first stage dollies were made on Wednesday:
Green stuffing & additional dollies on Thursday.
Friday was lost to H&R Block, AND yesterday was a daze. Today my enthusiasm clicked into high gear.
The result was the Two Tall Mushroom got their green stuff done, along with some work on the supporting cast:
Since these pics were taken, I have done a base coating of black on the Tall Fellows, & finished the green stuffing on the medium sized mushrooms.
Have I mentioned that I have a tendency to get carried away?
I have been waiting somewhat patiently for C.M.o.N. to restock Enigma's Oz-Zuh, Moon Face for several months. Today I thought I'd try my hand at making a mini similar to Oz.
This is Enigma's version...I would love to have mine paint up this nicely:
This morning I did up a dolly:
He looks like Howard the Duck at this stage:
Some green stuff work on his face, the ruff collar, & a hooded cape:
Now the Moon Faced Lad is one sleeve away from basic completion with only some embellishment that I may later regret to do:
The green stuff should be dry by seven or so; SO I may have him done today...or not.
Since I will be basing & painting him, I thought the W.I.P. section was more appropriate than the Sculpting.
My friend Daniel aka tauser, from the DM Craft Forum used Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock character Marjory The Trash Heap as the basis for one of his Monsters.
It was such a wonderful idea that I had to do a version of my own. She is just perfect for my Last Hurrah Project. SO...
Here is Jim Henson's original Marjory:
AND here is my W.I.P. version of The Trash Girl:
Stay tuned for further developments...eventually.
