No matter how hard I try, whenever I make a head with clay I can never make it with a nice attractive face ( see previous post :-)). This one turned out with weird looking smile. Mind you … I made it with the left over of the previous left over clay … That’s a lot of left overs. innit? Anyway the clay was nearly dry and hard and …. you can’t make a nice face with dry clay !!!
A couple of weeks ago the children were playing with clay ( making something for mother’s day …SHHHHH!) I took what was left over and made a head ( with a stupid look on his face … but that was an accident). After drying up he ( because it’s a boy) “stood” there depressed on my desk. After thinking for a while I understood why he was so unhappy; He wanted a body!!! And I did it! He complained at first because the clothes were too funky and there was no way he could flirt with anybody if he was dressed like that but … he got used to it! Actually, he’s on his knees because he is begging me to change his clothes :-)!
