I need more Mushrooms; the sort with faces & attitudes or, rather, I NEED to make some more. I do have some all painted up & ready to add that certain touch of NUTS to a base of vignette:   .

Yesterday was a bust Mushroom-wise. With an unexpected trip to Austin, all that got done was a white on black prep of Wednesday's Mushroom. Today though, I managed to do a few faces that I'll prep lat

Until now I hadn't thought of naming the Mushrooms, but the tall one in back, right hand side will forever be Kermit to moi...AND now Rainbow Connection is playing through my head.  Thanks, George...

Thank you, Fungus Fans! 

 

Exciting!!! 

 

Thanks, Morihalda...you are the very first person ever to describe my Mushrooms as exciting.

I'm doing the stems right now , which lack the visual interest of the Faces. I'll switch to doing stem than face to maintain your interest.

 

Shroomy !!!!!!

Yeah....

I suspect there is a fungus among us !

 

...AND they are taking over...I'll refrain from any political observations at this point.

 

More mushrooms! Huzzah!

 

Thanks, Mierot...you are the second person every to find my Mushrooms exciting. This is a definite morale boost.

The "Tallest" one of the 'dollies' looks like he is about to say "Hi there, Kermit the 'Shroom here..."

That great thing about your 'shrooms is that we don't even have to eat them to get the full tripping effect! Great job!

 

...Eat your heart out Dr. Tim! It's true though; I have White Rabbit & sometimes Songs to Aging Children Come playing in a loop through my head the moment green stuff touches the dolly.

Thanks for the reply, ub3r. Positive feedback is always appreciated...sometimes adored. I'm glad you like them.

Thanks for the imaginative reply, Jay! There are a few L.A.F. Folk that claim to have had Mushroom Nightmares...scary stuff. 

I opened a fresh tube of Green Stuff earlier; I'm all set for some Mushroom making...only baseball season is saving the World.

Yesterday I managed to finish up the sculpting & prep on a few more of the Mushrooms, some arms were added, AND the first of today's is setting. The excess from the pieces has been enough to finish the stems on  seven small normal(?) mushrooms. SO, without further delay, here's what the Gang look like now:

...with some closeups of the smaller of the Mushrooms & the Clarabellas:

...the more advanced one's; i.e., the ones with the arms:

AND the first Mushroom today:

...more later...perhaps.

This is the best 'not a how to make mushrooms' thread I've ever seen. (I think it might also be the only one, but I'm not certain about that).

 

Good stuff!

 

Waitaminutehere...they've got arms?!? AHHHHHH! They're gonna take over!

      Yeah, another base. Shocker, I know.  It's one I've been thinking about for years, basically, since I bought the beads that are in it.
       
      So, the premise:
      I use the air-dry clay hexes from the previous project as well as these beads I bought at Walmart so long ago. The Bugle Beads are hex-shaped and iridescent.  The color on the tube is labeled as "black iris."
       

       
      I build a flat of the hexes and use the beads upright on a portion of the base to represent an unusual terrain.  I use a pill bottle shell along one edge to build the terrain upward on that edge more easily.  I'll peel that off later.  
       
      So here's the bottom layer of the piece.
       

       
      The front layer is as high as it will go.  The next layer will go to the top of the beads and also be flat.  The last layer will be more like a hill on the other side of the beads.
       
      Now if this was for a mech it would look like pilings holding back the earth.  I will use more of them here than just along the fronts.
       
      Stay tuned. Enjoy. Please, stay safe.

      Halloween always gets my mind going with spooky thoughts...rather like the rest of the year, but more so.
      Now I have been making Pumpkinhead/Jack O'Lantern Folk for quite a while...here's an album of them:
       
      https://photos.app.goo.gl/KbDNTNRCMYcchlRn2
       
      Then I stumbled on this illustration on Pinterest,  AND I had to try that sunny smile:

       
      I was fairly pleased with the test results:

       
      I did a second one  with what I had learned from the first:

       
      ...with a closer look:

       
      The second is closer to the size of the Reaper Jack O'Lanterns that I usually use for the Pumpkinheads. The first is a bit larger. I may wind up using a GW Orc torso
      like this one from  2017:

       
      The legs are GW Zombie legs.
      This another possibility:

       
      OH THE POSSIBILITIES!

      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:

       
      More whenever.

      I found a wonderfully bizarre illustration of an armored Rhino by James Christensen. It is just my kind of Beasty:

       
      AND I just happened to have a toy Rhino grazing in The Vault:

       
      SO I started working on making my own version of the illustration:

       
      At this point the green stuff work is done with the exception of some touch ups & embellishments:

       
      The Rhino in his prime...so to speak:

       
      I thought I would be more motivated to finish painting the Big Guy if I post here as well as in The Last Hurrah Thread...I have a lot of strange thoughts.
      Today I started adding some colors to the base. Photos are likely...sometime or other.

      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.
