HDH053 - Pink on the Brink

They're coming to get you Barb! hehe couldn't resist that old line hehe.  He is supposed to be coming out of the shadows just in case it just looks like thrown on blobs of clay, just thought I would clarify that.

Well let's just say pink is really not my colour now if you asked my daughter she is pink MAD, everything has to be pink but not sinister hehe she really believes she is a princess and she is only three she tells us we must bow in her presence (cheeky monkey).  Anyway after looking at the design teams work I feel a little silly.  I went for zombie haha  now this poor guy didn't deserve to be infected, well look at that hat he had it coming big style haha and those pink laces my goodness get a life hehe.  My hubby has said that after the challenge please will I paint his hat a different colour hehe.


There is an amazing clay artist called Phil Hynes and after seeing his stuff I thought I think I might attempt to use my sculpey clay for something other than rolling balls and making ugly looking penguins and alcoholic looking santas hmm.  So I dug the sculpey out of the my craft area (the garage) I have only had it for about 4 or 5 years now (still in good working condition).  I did the hands first quite late on and I kept getting them to look how I wanted then when I tried to do the other side they would squish but eventually got it semi ok.  The next day hubby was away at footie and I wanted to do the rest so put a movie on for my son and got my girls the playdoh out and bobs your uncle (don't even ask me what that means!) the girls at first fought over the playdoh so I separated them to one side of the table each and tada I got time to finish it. 



I couldn't get a good pic of his hands I am terrible at taking pictures, my hubby i the photographer.  This is the best pic I could get.



I have just shoved a couple of pics in as they are all terrible haha so my way of compensating for bad photography skills is taking about a million pics and hopefully some will turn out.



This was when I glued it on at first I had it all black (still wet paint, I am too impatient).  Hubby said would make more sense to have black silhouette of zombie and smokey grey for background and it does look better.  So another halloween wall decoration hehe.

So don't forget to pop over to haunted design house and check out their creations very fab.

What amazing artistic vision you have Andrea. To have him coming out from the shadows is brilliant! I just made a killer witch face out of polymer clay and an old ceramic harlequin mask someone gave me. I am taking work in progress photos (but unable to upload to Blogger still!), and will be sure to post once I have it complete. Phil is so inspiring!!!

Excelent work Andrea, the expression is very Zombie like. I also hate making hands, the hardest thing ever. You end up chasing your tail a bit correcting the top then the underside, then the top again.... it's always easier to have them holding something.

Fantastic! love it. The pink laces are great fun - and the hands are amazing. I don't want to think about my last attempt to make hands - horrible break down ended with me smashing the startet sculpture into the bin...
