I Can’t Stop Making Faces!

I really can’t stop . . . . .  I just can’t.  I am having way too much fun!! These are my Picasso-inspired polymer clay faces. There are faces everywhere. Some are better than others, some are definitely my favs.  But a little time playing is in order. No expectations. Push the boundaries. See what happens.

These four faces are the first group completed that I considered ‘successful’.

I started working off the edge. This opened up a whole new approach.

Working off of the edges was like coloring outside the lines.

I love the little antenna!

The details along the top added some nice character.

Cut outs on the edge!

Here I used some details at the top and tried a couple of cut-outs.

This one uses cut-outs of the first layer and drops color into the second layer.

Hair . . . .  some of them even have hair! Well ok . . . .  not real hair . . . . . .  pieces of fabric that fray easily and have been covered in liquid polymer clay. Not sure why I felt the need to cover them in polymer, but I did. Will they be less fragile . . .who knows.  Stiffer so they stand up . . . . yup!

Well I am going to let this play out before I start anything else. Who knows how this is going to go . . . . but I am having fun doing it!
