Yikes! I checked the time and it was already 11:30 -- no time for a second try with the plaster cloth project! Must. post. entry. before. midnight.
Okay -- I fixed the chronology of the photos...it is really 12:02 now.
Today I did a lot of thinking, prepping, layouts, etc. I worked on three projects and have a few things to show for it. Here is how it went...
|Then I went back to thinking about another possible postcard. I knew I wanted to do an Animal People assembled cat girl that was too large for the Art-o-mat block as a postcard.|
|Hey -- a rattan chair...|
|A couple of sofas...|
|...the leather one is just too plain...|
|I like the striped one...and I found a little dog, too.|
|Here is a possible idea...she is maybe thinking of what she wants to plant in her garden this season...not sure I will stay with this...not glued down yet.|
|Then I cut slits into the other end for the head parts to be inserted into for strength/stability.|
|I wanted to use very lightweight materials so that the plaster cloth won't be too heavy and push the head downwards. I ended up not using the plastic lid.|
|I like the flatter head better...for now.|
|I put masking tape all around it and secured it to the toy body. By this time I needed a break from this again.|
|I thought about how I could put the bear print onto the Bristol board and just went with the easiest/driest method...glue stick.|
|The back of the postcard (for now).|
|The front of the postcard (for now) -- I am happy with how close I got the edges...the carving is not exactly 4x6.|
|The tonight I decided I wanted to get some plaster cloth onto the alligator toy. I took this small project out to the dining room table and worked on a plastic trash bag. No time to take process photos...just the end results.|
|His new head -- so far.|
|The repaired section of tail...so far.|
|How it is looking so far...not too bad.|
Okay -- I finished the update/edit at 12:26...that is enough for tonight!
