Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 12, 2010 by figmentsstudio

With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, I’d like to share some photos of three one-of-a-kind pieces I made some years ago. 

First, a customer in Oregon wanted a life-size leprechaun for her annual St. Patrick’s Day party and I loved making him! He stands approx. 4 ft. tall and is dancing a little jig with his pipe and shalaylee.

 The second piece, Father Christmas, is approx. 3 ½ ft. tall. This client wanted a large Santa for her entry way to greet her family and friends during the holidays, complete with a long scroll with everyone’s name on it.  

The faces and hands of the Leprechaun and Father Christmas were sculpted with Creative Paperclay then painted with acrylic paint. To assemble the bodies, I used dowel rods, heavy wire, newspaper and masking tape. I used mohair for their beards and hair and sewed their costumes.

 The third piece is a jointed rabbit puppet that stands 26” tall. The rougher texture of this papier mache clay (Celluclay) gives him a more primitive look.

I recently began advertising in Romantic Homes Magazine, a beautiful, vintage-inspired lifestyle and home decorating publication. In the current April issue, I was so excited to see that, in addition to my ad, they did a full page product feature of two of my best-selling journals!  Here’s the page from the magazine.  Better yet, go pick up a copy of this gorgeous issue!
