Sculpey Adventures in Birdland

I recently purchased some Firm Super Sculpey (an oven bake clay) for the first time to try my hand at sculpting.  I had read about a clay-pipe dairy goddess and liked the idea of forming my own creation with a hollow center and so I wrapped a coil of clay around my finger and then put a small round ball for a head on the top.  I wanted to create a shape and design that I could use over and over to create a whole line of figures; something cute and simple.  Well, my little goddess figure somehow morphed into a Bird Person who later decided that he wanted a wee  striped railroad cap and a bowtie!  I baked him in the oven for the requisite 15-30 minutes at  275° and will paint him next so stay tuned!

I am a self taught intuitive artist currently living and working in the desert valley of Southern California surrounded by ancient oaks and an elfin forest. I live in a home created by my husband that we share with our cat and dog, Abby and Spartacus. Gnomes, aliens and fairies have also been spotted here. I’ve been drawing since age two and giving intuitive soul readings since 2008.
