The September/October issue of Somerset Studio just arrived, which means it will be at your favorite retail store soon (also available online at Stampington.com). When they announced the theme of Art Doll Extravaganza I had no idea that I would actually heed the call. But I've always wanted to investigate the Three Kings and so what started as a plan to work flat with layers of paper turned into polymer clay sculpture. I love PC as a medium, but definitely stepped out of my comfort zone when I embarked on these pieces. There were many casualties in the process, which led to better solutions and improvising on the fly. Don't you love when that happens? In the previous post I showed you my stencil on clay - that became the garment on Caspar.
You can read more about these guys in the issue - here's a peek at the article for my column, Make It Your Own.
If you're a regular reader you have seen my Nativity set, complete with the Wise Men. Even though I love the collection, I've been interested in making my own Three Kings ever since seeing The Little Drummer Boy when I was a kid. I'm so thrilled to finally have these guys completed and have so many new ideas for polymer clay!
